- Dupuis-Design Corp
The House Company Ltd.
Architects and Building Designers in Edmonton
"House design and build. We were sold after meeting Jamie and David. Excellent people with a high regard for the customer and their satisfaction through all phases of the process. We were also sold on the fact they had their own team of finishing carpenters who also did the framing. As we were working together to build a Craftsman home that truly copied the homes from the 20's that was critical. Trades coming in later commented that it was one of the squarest.truest houses they had ever worked in. Despite all the infills in our neighborhood (10-15 a year now) our house still gets rave reviews as one of the best people have seen to date. Exceptional trades that have stayed loyal to The House Company. 11 years later no issues to report. They were transparent about project costs allowing us to make positive financial decisions and they were perfect on their timelines. We consider them friends now and highly recommend them."

"I hired Tomboy construction twice now, and each time I was very pleased with the work quality. The Company goes above and beyond the contract. Job one was to renovate a bathroom from top to bottom. It turned out better than I imagined. Job two was to to do my sidewalks in the front. I needed them done asap and Rene came through and did an excellant job. I also am hiring her to do my laundry room. Thanks Rene Laurie"

Andreas Lietz
Architects and Building Designers in Edmonton
"Andreas Lietz is a master of his craft! We initially hired him to design our 0.9 acre lot and we were so impressed with his knowledge and professionalism that we further engaged him and his crew at Salisbury to implement and complete the project. He was very thoughtful during the initial planning meetings paying particular attention to our special requests. Because of this, we arrived at our final design with only one further iteration. His communication skills are impeccable. He kept us informed and included us throughout the entire process. He designed and implemented our project within budget and meet all projected deadlines. Andreas went out of his way to meet with us on our schedule (ie. either very early in the morning or on Sundays in between hockey games!). Andreas went out of his way to work with the County Inspector to ensure our project was approved. Now that our project is complete, Andreas still answers any questions that we may have, gives us tips and tricks, and genuinely cares about his creation. We would highly recommend Andreas and his Salisbury crew to our friends, family and colleague's."

How do I find the best architect for my home design project?


It is best to hire a home architect who will be involved in all phases of the design process, from the initial concept to the completed construction. The architect is often the first person you will hire for your project. If necessary, they might also help you select and hire subcontractors, which can include the builders, engineers and landscaper. Interior architects are also involved in negotiating contracts for all involved participants. It is for these reasons that it is extremely important for you to have a good relationship with the residential architect you hire. He or she can be the tie-breaking vote between you and the general contractor and can be your biggest advocate during the construction process. Different architecture firms in Edmonton provide different services, so the scope of the work can span from pre-design environmental impact studies to selecting furniture and finishes, depending on what your specific needs are.

What sort of process can I expect from a residential architect?


As far as the process goes, the architecture firm or individual that you choose will start with concept drawings and finish with construction drawings and documents. Some firms even design with 3D renderings and videos, but that should not be assumed. There should be plenty of meetings between you and your building designer until you have agreed upon a design that you are completely happy with. Always keep in mind that the designer will have building codes to follow, and likely pre-existing design limitations when dealing with a remodel, so while they might not be able to execute your exact ideas they always have your safety and aesthetics in mind. One of the most important duties of a residential architect is to serve as managers and supervise most aspects of construction, as well as facilitate communication between all other contractors, so you can expect them to be present throughout the entire building process to ensure everything is executed as planned.

It is very important to hire the right professional for the job. Remember that the most well-known or established designer might not provide the best architectural services for your needs. It all comes down to the individual project. Research and ask people whose work you like for recommendations. It's important to have somewhat of an idea of the style of house architecture that you prefer, as well as the amount you would like to spend. Residential architects in Edmonton are natural problem solvers. They will assess the entire situation and help you to solve your problems too. Don't settle for a single company too early. Call and interview a few. Make sure that you feel like your personalities will mesh well and that you like their professional perspective.

Questions to ask prospective interior architects:


  • What is your fee structure?
  • What does the cost include?
  • Do you have professional liability insurance?
  • Can you handle my special requests (ADA, LEED etc.)?
  • What types of renderings (3D, video, illustrative) will you produce?
  • What is your experience with similar projects?
  • When do you expect to start and be finished with the project?
  • What do your services include? (It's best that the services are until construction is completed.)
  • What happens when the cost exceeds the budget?
  • Can you provide me with references?
  • Would you say your work has a defining style? (This is important in case the architect's personal style will interfere with your vision.)
  • Will you help with hiring a general contractor and subcontractors?
  • What do you estimate the cost will be?
  • What will I need to provide?
  • Are there any complications you foresee with this project?
