Dealing with the Building Department

Unlike many Miami architecture firms, we only send completed drawings to the building department.  Then, we follow carefully the entire permitting process.  Unlike other architecture firms, we go to the building department and meet with the officials, if necessary.  

As Miami architects, residents for many years, we bring extensive knowledge of the construction industry.  Our familiarity with this area and its multiple building departments, can help you navigate the process.   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. 

Dealing with Contractors

We help you select the best contractor for the project, either through a bid or a negotiated process.  We help you determine the best written contract for the project.  We help you decide whether or not you should give a contractor money up front.

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.
