Before purchasing a new green field property, existing building or residence, gain the confidence you need with a professional opinion on how to most effectively capitalize upon your investment.

Obtain specialized expert advice as we accompany you to an existing property you are considering and discover the hidden potential (and costly obstacles) in adapting or renovating an existing home, small building or tenant space prior to purchase or lease.

Our Pre-Purchase Consultation visit includes a walk-through to discuss the adaptation potential of the site, house or building, and may cover:
- feasible design and layout changes;
- potential additions and alteration types;
- general site and property restrictions;
- permit and other approval requirements;
- general construction costs guidelines; and
- our design process and scheduling.

Find out if your building has the bones to be great, or costly problems best avoided.

This service is ideal for people who are searching for that perfect site, investigating potential real estate or for Real Estate Agents themselves who would like to assist their potential clients with a value-added professional opinion ahead of time in order to supplement their own property documentation. This service is intended to give people access to a licensed design professional who can provide renovation advice regarding potential modifications to an existing dwelling or building, general cost guidelines and describe the overall process of going through a renovation or addition project and answer preliminary questions.

A second part to this unique pre-purchase service is our effective Zoning & Code Analysis which allows you to also understand what the municipal restrictions on the site are and how they might affect your early aspirations.

Avoid buyer's remorse by contacting us to provide professional opinion into your home, building or vacation property plans. Looking for a specific 'diamond in the rough' site to develop? Ask us about finding the perfect lot after coming to understand your motivations and building goals.

If you already feel we can help you, contact us to schedule an appointment for us to accompany you and your realtor prior to signing a purchase agreement. Then, consider taking advantage of our effective Discovery Consultation to start your renovation project with the best foot forward.
* Fees begin at $195 per hour. In addition to our discussion, documentation includes a brief written synopsis of our visit to a property within 15kms of Lethbridge (travel rates apply at greater distances).

Think you can't afford an architect? You can.

For many people, full architectural design services are not in the cards. In these cases, to provide greater access and help more people improve building outcomes, we began offering individual and packaged design services in addition to full services so that you can work with a design professional when it matters most: in the earliest stage of your project when ideas are formed and advanced on paper with zero construction cost implications to making repeat changes.
