Working with Architects

Architect members of the AIA Ventura County understand what makes this region such a special place.  Most have been living and working here for years and, in many cases, decades. They are uniquely positioned to help you find an appropriate solution for your project, whether you are building an Elementary School or a Home Addition, one that exceeds your expectations and enhances the community that we all care about so deeply.

If you’ve never worked with an architect before, you likely have questions. Does your project really require an architect? At what point should you involve a design team? What is it like to work with an AIA architect, and how do you get the most out of the experience? The AIA has resources to help you find answers and tools to guide you through the five stages of design. Prepare yourself for a rewarding relationship with an AIA architect.
