“At every step of the design and construction process, the TEA2 team went above and beyond, and the finished project is testament to your passion for excellence.
While this caliber of work may be ‘business as usual’ for your firm, I believe it’s becoming a rarity in this business. Having been in the industry for 30 years, I have worked with numerous architects on more than 1,000 new construction or remodeling projects. Over the last 10‐15 years, I have seen a continuous decline in the quality of plans and specs. While this may be the result of pressure to reduce total design fees, this cost‐cutting measure does not eliminate the expense, as the work still has to be done by someone on the team.
Your highly detailed plans and specs…make it easy for us to accurately bid the job, as we donʹt have to guess at the intent of your design. Your teamʹs meticulousness also eliminates the need for builders to make design decisions on site. While these individuals may excel at their jobs, they typically arenʹt the right people to decide the color and width of the grout, the placement of light fixtures, and other important (and highly visible) design details!
By providing comprehensive plans and specs up front, TEA2 helps improve project coordination and minimize change orders, allowing us to adhere to the project timeline. This reduces stress on our clients, saves time and money, and ensures that the finished spaces are exactly what our clients envisioned.”
