Collaboration. Value. Expectations.
Prime Architect’s practice began with small commercial development projects in the local metro area and has grown to healthcare projects for the VA in the general geographical region and beyond. Our most recent work has been focused on revitalization projects in various Oklahoma City historic neighborhoods.
We strive to identify and understand Client’s goals and objectives. This helps us to understand the projects value and helps us manage project expectations to deliver the project on time and on budget.
Our architectural services include the standard phases of design: conceptual design, schematic design, design development, construction documents, bidding/negotiation, and construction administration. For more information on each of these phases, please see our recent blog post “Phases of an Architectural Design Project” or click here to contact us for more information.
