Our Work: For more than 25 years, DW Ricks Architects has earned a reputation for award-winning, well-crafted, energy efficient homes. The firm specializes in residential design, including new homes, whole-house remodels, and large additions tailored to each client’s tastes and demands.
Our clients appreciate the additional insight and knowledge we bring to their project. Our firm is based on a tried and true Design-Bid-Build model. The home owner retains us and we serve them exclusively. The architect manages the entire process, turn-key, from initial design concepts through construction.
Our method offers advantages over the Design/Build model. Every planning decision is informed by professional design insight and input. Our experience and guidance empowers clients. They become active collaborators and make informed decisions. To drive down construction costs, we competitively bid each project to multiple pre-qualified contractors. They offer construction-only services at reduced cost by avoiding redundant fees for management already administered by the architect.
