Residential and Commercial Design (multi-family)
Pairing owner’s representation services with residential and commercial design, provides the ultimate assurance that your vision will be properly communicated and executed.
For example, the president of The Rev Group (one of our associates) is an accomplished residential and commercial design specialist, with a degree in building design. Each of our residential and commercial design projects are truly unique, and have a builder’s touch.
Residential design works as a partnership between the architect and the interior designer. The architect begins the process, ensuring that the home is safe and structurally sound. The architect designs a home to meet local building codes, including regulations for plumbing and electrical safety. The building’s size and envelope is relatively small when compared to commercial properties.
On paper, it seems that commercial design follows the same process. Architects create buildings with a sound infrastructure that meet local building code regulations — yet there are significant differences. Commercial buildings are usually larger than residential buildings, which demand a greater responsibility for safety and structural integrity.
Commercial buildings also have greater infrastructure needs. They will need elevators to allow for freight and people, bathrooms for visitors and employees, cafeterias and even parking areas, all of which are less common in a residential building, even if the residential building is a large condominium complex. All of these structural elements and designs must be in place before the designer can start working on the project.
If a commercial architect is working on a specialized facility, the design process changes even further. For example, medical or health care facilities need to have plans to keep the area sterile and protect patients. Hospitality buildings, like hotels, need to ensure that they have space to meet their guests’ needs as well as provide entertainment and restaurant options. Retail buildings must have space to display their products for sale, give customers a place to park, and provide easy-to-find restrooms.
Residential and Commercial Design working hand in hand with Project management and owner’s representation, can make projects run smoother, more efficiently and with a maximum of cost savings.
