Samuel Sinnott and Company, Architecture and Construction Incorporated, is a construction corporation providing full services in Residential and Commercial Interior Architecture, Interior Design, Site Design, and Construction. Services start with a free, onsite kickoff meeting to see if the project vision conforms with building codes, can be executed attractively, and can be delivered on budget and schedule. Service typically includes verification of existing site and building conditions, conceptual design, preliminary project cost estimating, permit documents, construction documents, and construction.
Conceptual drawings are often drawn by hand in ink to save time and have a more artistic outcome. Our preliminary construction and project cost estimating is a valuable design tool that helps avoid costly redesign if construction costs are over budget. Sinnott and Company incorporates permitting strategies that identify plan check problems in advance and streamline permit plan checking. These approaches help our unique and artistic projects meet construction budget and schedule expectations.
Design work is always performed on a time and material basis. Hourly rates are usually $180 per hour for principals and $120 per hour for all others. Reimbursable expenses are typically marked up by 15%. This approach allows us to work flexibly on whatever the client wants or the problem demands.
A construction agreement is not a requirement of the design agreement but is offered as part of our services under a separate contract. Clients have complete flexibility to choose any supplier or subcontractor to help deliver the project. Rates and markups vary with the scope and difficulty of the work.
