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. You need to find an architect! We, home grown Miami architects, United Architects, Inc., are experts in remodeling and adding to existing commercial and institutional buildings.
If you have never built anything, you may think that remodeling or adding to a building is easier than new construction. It sounds logical. The addition or the part of the building to be remodeled is often smaller than a new building, but it is actually much harder to design and build an addition or remodel part of a building than it is to do an entire new building. In a new building, there are no existing conditions with which to deal. However, in a remodeling or an addition, many existing systems, such as the mechanical, electrical, and structural have to respected and modified. This is often no easy task. And, if you are a busy executive or professional who doesn't have to time to handle the process yourself, we can step into your shoes and represent you every step of the way, from initial design to final close-out.
As architects working in Miami-Dade County for since 1976, we can help you every step of the way, especially if you have never built anything before. We take the time to educate our clients in the design and construction process. See more at our Commercial and Schools pages. We get your plans through the permitting process quickly. We cut through red tape fast! This means that you can move into your new building sooner, allowing you to start making money faster!
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. 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.
