About | Working With Us
Design is more than aesthetics – it is also a process of analysis, research, and problem solving that provides the framework for making buildings and systems, places and things. Open Architecture Workshop excels in systematic solutions that provide greater than expected value for each project and client while employing a few unique but tested practices to streamline our operations; thereby allowing us to spend more time on creating quality environments.
Open Architecture Workshop invoices based on one hourly rate for all staff-time expended in the service of each project. The establishment of a singular billing rate takes into consideration the varying rates of responsibility, experience, and time spent specific to the needs of a project while eliminating complex accounting procedures and more easily provides direct and timely feedback of each project’s progression through the phases of design, documentation, and implementation.
To manage costs and improve service, Open Architecture Workshop has strategic partnerships with professionals in support industries that guarantee timely deliverables and dedicated service while assigning the true costs of such services to each project.
Open Architecture Workshop will enter into hourly or stipulated sum (fixed fee) agreements. Some phases of a project may be best suited to a particular fee structure than another; we will discuss the options, opportunities, and benefits of each form of project delivery within each project phase ensuring a full understanding of expectations before we begin.
We look forward to working with you!
