For certain projects, architectural master planning is the critical first step in the design process. Master plans are like road maps that chart a course between the present and your intended destination while maintaining consideration for future changes and big picture needs.  A master plan is a worthwhile investment that ensures both functional and logical decisions are made at each stage of the project development. Metrics Architecture prepares master plans by focusing on assessing your current conditions, data gathering, site evaluations, and user feedback. The result is a strategic and reliable road map for future building projects.

We are dedicated to providing professional design services that fulfill our clients’ needs, adhere to our clients’ budget and schedule parameters and provide buildable solutions that create functional spaces within enriched aesthetic environments.

Project Management

Completing building projects requires a team of creative, resourceful, and highly skilled professionals to work together to accomplish the common goal of designing and constructing a building. It's a process that demands vigorous communication, rational guidance, and strong leadership. Metrics Architecture has the knowledge, experience, and ability to effectively manage and coordinate your project from start to finish. Metrics Architecture takes care of the heavy lifting for you and applies strategies that will keep your project on track, on time, and on budget.
