Cost Containment

Most projects undertaken by McCandless & Associates, Architects involve definite budget constraints where cost containment is of paramount importance. We pride ourselves on our ability to work with the client to program their project so that it conforms with their financial capabilities. The key to success in this regard is the ability to extract from the local client program those features and attributes which are required and desired, and drawing on professional experience, make design recommendations which will be realistic in terms of program solution and budget.

Our experience with a broad range of building types and uses gives us a strong background on finish material selection and their positive and negative attributes with regard to use and budget; our design recommendations are always made based upon a well researched investigation of aesthetic, functional and budgetary issues in direct consultation with the client. This standard of practice has lead to our high success rate with regard to project cost containment.
