[In hiring an architect and builder], we were looking for firms that were large enough to be able to appropriately and professionally handle our needs, but small enough that we felt we could have fluid collaboration. Our team also desired professional alignment in terms of considering flexibility, sustainability, creative problem solving and hiring local subcontractors.
Of course, we’re also very budget conscious, so we needed to be able to evaluate the prices based on the proposal responses and based on market pricing trends. We were pleasantly surprised to learn that we weren’t priced out of finding quality professionals and we had a really impressive slate of candidates. In the end, we found the best synergies with Re:Vision Architecture and Buckminster Green Construction and we haven’t been disappointed.
