Brevard Architecture has a long history of municipal and commercial architecture. Our extensive construction experience and association with quality contractors have resulted in a history of accurate construction estimates. Once construction begins, we keep change orders to a minimum. We try to limit change orders to unforeseen site developments and to discretionary changes made by the owner.
Brevard Architecture and its engineering consultants take advantage of the most current technology available. All drawings are prepared on AutoCAD. We use e-mail to transfer drawings between offices. While writing specifications, we verify product selections with manufacturers web sites to ensure that selected materials and equipment are current and affordable.
Brevard Architecture prepares three dimensional renderings in-house using sophisticated rendering software. These renderings enable our clients to get a very real sense of what their buildings will look like. They are prepared to scale and shade and shadows are projected accurately for latitude, time of year, and time of day. This software allows for instantaneous experimentation with different colors and materials; brick vs. stone, for example. These drawings can be animated to simulate walk-arounds and fly-overs.
We know just the right amount of information to put into a set of plans to control the final product without giving craftsman more information than they can understand.
We take much pride in being responsive to our clients; phone calls get returned promptly, questions get answered quickly.
