Selecting an Architect - The Resources of AIA Wisconsin

Selecting the right architectural design team to work with is a huge first step, as you embark on your design journey.  Whether it is something as small as a bathroom or kitchen renovation, or as large as a 12-story boutique hotel, establishing that initial relationship with a design professional can be stressful.  With so many established firms, how does one choose which is the right fit?

AIA Wisconsin provides a great breakdown as to why you should hire an architect, and how to go about selecting the right professional for your job.  For those of you not familiar with the The American Institute of Architects (AIA) – Wisconsin, it was established in 1911 as an organization to “represent architects in private practice, business, industry, government and education, as well as interns, allied professionals and students (AIA Wisconsin History - AIA Website).”  

The AIA Wisconsin website explains a step by step process regarding how an architect can help assist a client with envisioning their goals.  Much like any other service industry, personal recommendations from family and friends are usually a good starting point, when searching for a design professional!  Visit the AIA website for more tips towards finding the ideal candidate to craft your visions!

Let us know if we can ever be of assistance in making your visions become reality!  And if you have any questions regarding the beginning stages of your project, feel free to reach out; we’d love to help!
