Here is what Rick Kendle says about the articles: "I do Property Tax appeals, where I lower the tax value of properties for the owners. I love the articles that Maria Luisa Castellanos writes. I reference them in my appeals before Magistrates. While I have a degree in engineering, and a law degree, her information is priceless to me. I refer anyone I know to Ms Castellanos, as a fellow professional, I know when someone 'knows their stuff'. She is really good."

You have a business that is growing by leaps and bounds.  You cannot fit in your building anymore.  Pretty soon, the way it’s going, your employees will have to be sitting outside or your warehouse will no longer hold the inventory you need to keep up with demand.  But you don’t know where to begin in order to expand your building or build a new one.  You need to find an architect!  We, home grown Miami architects, United Architects, Inc., are experts in designing and building commercial and institutional buildings.  As architects working in Miami-Dade County for since 1976, we can help you every step of the way.  See more at our Commercial and Schools pages.  We pride ourselves on our ability to get our plans through the permitting process quickly.  This means that you can move into your new building sooner, allowing you to start making money!

Architectural process guide by Miami architects, United Architects

Unlike many Miami architecture firms, we only send completed drawings to the building department.  Then, we follow carefully the entire permitting process.  We go to the building department and meet with each discipline, if necessary.  The result of this effort is that you get your permit quickly and can start construction that much sooner!As Miami architects, residents for many years, we bring to you extensive knowledge of the construction industry in this area.  Our familiarity with the area and its multiple building department, can help you navigate the process.  You can read more about the different building departments and then know what to expect from each.  The more you know ahead of time the easier it will be for you to obtain a building permit and start construction.

Most architects give you a set of plans for you to critique but we are with you from the beginning of the creative phase through the completed permit plans all the way to the end of the construction phase.  We don’t abandon you leaving you to figure out for yourself what is happening. 

We tell you what to expect each step of the way.  We help you select the best contractor for the project, either through a bid or a negotiated process.  So once the contractor is selected how do you know the typical time it should take to put up the studs or drywall?  How long should the roof take to put on, or why are the cabinets not installed yet.  Each part of the process is important and we help you to navigate it.

We go over a list of items at the beginning of the project that are important for you to know in the process.  For example, where are the pitfalls of construction and what should you look at for prior to hiring a contractor?  How do change orders work if you change your mind in the construction phase and want to add more items for the contractor to do at the end of the project.  We will explain this in detail so that the project will go more smoothly. 


We invite you to spend some time on our website and to call us at (305) 552-5465 or write to us at MLC@UnitedArchs.com.  There is no charge for the initial consultation, if you own the property.
