Services We Provide
Barry Davis, Architects, P.C. is a full-service architectural firm serving the Southeast. We typically use the AIA family of contract documents; therefore, our services are based on the structure, scope and parameters provided in those documents. In addition, we are familiar with - and often work with - other contractual arrangements including those of the Alabama Building Commission, ADECA, Veterans Affairs and the Corps of Engineers. Of course, we would be happy to consider other atypical agreements designed to meet the Client's specific needs.
Construction Administration and Management
We are happy to provide an hour initial consultation at no cost. This gives us an opportunity to get to know each other, provide the client with a general idea of what to expect in their project, and determine whether our firm is a good "fit" for the client's needs.
Typically our fee is a percentage of the construction cost. The percentage is derived from the Alabama Building Commission's fee structure because, historically, much of our work has been public sector work. There are times, however, when it may be more appropriate to bill at our hourly rates. Finally, some clients request that we provide a proposal for a fixed fee at the inception of the project. It should be noted that this last method is usually least desirable because it is virtually impossible to fully define the scope of a project at the inception, and subsequent changes in the scope necessitate changes in the fee. Our fee structure, including hourly rates, is available upon request.
