Ballard + Mensua Architecture
Founded in 2005, Ballard + Mensua Architecture is a full-service architecture firm specializing in unique and custom homes and renovations. But they offer their clients far more than the standard architecture firm. “Our architects all grew up around construction and understand the nuts and bolts of putting a project together,” says Seth Ballard, principal of Ballard + Mensua Architecture.
In addition, the firm has established long-term relationships with numerous contractors and vendors, to the benefit of their clients. This allows Ballard + Mensua to offer not only architectural services, but all aspects of design in a single firm, from interior design and decorating to landscape design, and more. “With a broad network of the top builders and vendors that work under our guidance, we offer full-service project management from concept to completion,” says Ballard.
The result is a process that allows for the positives of design/build, but maintains the competitive bidding and checks and balances of a traditional client/architect/builder relationship.
With access to a wide array of solar energy consultants, mechanical engineers, and contractors familiar with geothermal heat and other green technologies, Ballard + Mensua allows its clients to utilize creative means to minimize their energy use and material waste, allowing them to be as green as they wish to be.
The bottom line: Ballard + Mensua’s projects come in on time, under budget and to their client’s precise specifications. And their clients’ satisfaction extends to Ballard, as well: “I love attending the open houses when one of our projects is complete,” he says. “Especially watching our clients’ pride in showing off all of our combined hard work.”
