As a Registered Architect in Colorado, Steve has been designing projects for years. Since Landmarkk was formed in the early 80’s, Steve has designed loft projects in LoDo and Capitol Hill, houses and townhomes in the mountains, and many residences in Central Denver. Because of Landmarkk’s construction experience, projects are realistic, easy to build, and do not go over budget.
CONSTRUCTION MANAGEMENT SERVICES
These days, Landmarkk builds only one or two projects per year. The company is kept small and easy to manage. This way, quality control does not become an issue. The contract is a variety of the AIA guarantied maximum price, in which all billing and subcontracts are transparently reviewed by the bank and the owner. Periodic billing is cost of the work plus a % fee. There is also a construction contingency to absorb positive and negative variations in bidding. At the end of the project, unused contingency is returned to the owner.
Recently started by Landmarkk, this is a service provided to people who have a question about remodeling. If your issue is resolved in one quick email, the service is free. If you need a written opinion, or if there is an extended Q&A, hourly rates apply. Typically people use this service when they are thinking about making a major improvement to their existing property, or a property they want to buy.
This service is very useful for property owners who want to upgrade the heating or air conditioning of an older home without compromising the original character. Solar panels are another possible feature which doesn’t have to detract from the appearance of your home.
After all these years, Landmarkk has gotten pretty good at estimating small remodeling and new construction costs. This is a service which is part of the typical design contract, but it’s also possible as a stand-alone service for individuals and professionals.
ZONING AND CODE ANALYSIS
As you can imagine, this is part of the design service. As a separate service, a creative code/zoning investigation can discover possibilities previously not considered.
CONSTRUCTION PROBLEM RESOLUTION
This service is really another pair of objective third party eyes looking at a construction issue. The goal is to provide realistic options to resolve a dispute or simply get out of a sticky situation with the building department, a neighbor, a buyer, or a contractor. Landmarkk can also mediate legal disputes and provide litigation support.
The purpose of feasibility is to determine if your project is viable. A study can be a one paragraph email or a detailed report, depending on the complexity of the problem. Normally, property owners want to know if their expansion is financially realistic, or if it’s permissible by the zoning or building code. Structural possibilities or architectural design issues are also common questions.
