Paragon has integral knowledge about all aspects of the project from the start including design, budget, and structural aspects. This allows the team members to have a better understanding and grip on the overall project enabling them to work hand in hand with each other and giving the owner a project experience that is smooth and enjoyable.
The specialty of the architects is to focus on creating designs. Not all architects can predict structural issues and complications. Many are unfamiliar with building techniques and do not have the knowledge to work on a difficult site, a hillside ravine or on an island property. Without local experience, some depend excessively on performance from general contractors and structural engineers to work out structural details on site. On site and on paper are two different things.
Bringing in a structural engineer when the design is complete leads to delays in the progress of a project. The engineer brings solutions that may require design alterations to make the built form structurally stable. The architect may find it is impractical to accept and incorporate those said changes in the design. The project can remain in a standstill until all concerned parties are in mutual agreement. This can lead to escalating costs, delays, and in some cases, liens, and lawsuits. This is not what people want when it comes to building their new homes!
Paragon is a better alternative as we can create and design while considering structural and engineering challenges. We have in depth understanding of intricacies of construction and our team has practical knowledge and experience to build your custom home or cottage on a challenging or even inaccessible site.
We design while keeping all technical aspects in mind.
