Architect Collaboration

Share This:

Mueller Homes takes great pride in our ability to collaborate effectively with some of the most respected architects, locally and nationally.  Builder and architect collaboration is essential to the overall process.  We sincerely believe that genuine collaboration between an architect, a builder, and a homeowner can create a work of art!  Isn’t that, ultimately, what you want your home to be?

Over the past 30 years, we have utilized a variety of different business models. During this time, we have found that the collaborative approach provides varied and necessary input, experience, and ideas from both the builder and architect. It is through this collaboration that we build a well-designed home that is quality crafted and meets the homeowner’s lifestyle and desired budget.

Some homeowners select an architect before they meet with a builder, while others select the builder and then have the builder assist them in selecting an architect. There is no inherently right or wrong way to proceed, but we strongly recommend that the builder and architect be introduced early on and collaborate throughout the design process. The architect is generally responsible for the design and structural elements of the home while the builder is primarily responsible for ensuring that the concept can be built within the budget desired. We believe this kind of builder and architect collaboration is the key to a successful building experience and keeping the project within your budget and on-schedule.

We have developed solid, long-standing relationships with architects with whom we’ve come to rely and trust.  So, if desired, we can help you interview architects to determine who is the best fit for your project.  Or, if you’ve already selected an architect, we will be glad to collaborate and work together to bring your visions to life.
