Speaking with an architect can be helpful if
you do not know the answer to some of these questions:
Should we build new or remodel the existing
Should we stay at the same location or relocate?
How do I evaluate several building sites?
How large should the building be?
What is required for local government approval?
How much will my project cost?
Knapp Schmidt Architects can advise you on many of these topics,
drawing on our decades of experience working with veterinarians
with similar questions. You can either call us directly, or fill
out the Business
and Building Overview questionnaire available
on our website. This form provides a useful basis to start a Telephone

A Feasibility Analysis is
an excellent way to begin any construction project if you are uncertain
about any of the above or other topics. The services provided in
this analysis include a personal site visit, establishment of a
construction budget, review of local government requirements, and
sometimes evaluation of several different locations. A conceptual
site plan is usually included in the final report. The Feasibility
AnalysisReport is a useful document to
provide to banks and other financing institutions, to partners,
spouses, and even to selected local builders. The fees for this
work will be credited against Programming Phase fees if you
elect to hire Knapp Schmidt Architects for building design services
at a future date. We will prepare and send you a proposal for this
service at no charge
If you are planning a new hospital and have
your building site selected, or are planning tenant space improvements,
we can prepare a Proposal for Architectural
Services upon request. To complete the proposal,
we will need to know on the purpose for the building, the location
of the building, the size of the building. The proposal will establish
a project construction budget and describe services and fees. There
is no charge for preparing a proposal for architectural services.
