We are a company that embraces change. Change is the inevitable force that is the only constant in our lives. The business of architecture is changing. Clients are becoming more sensitive to issues other than cash flow and they expect their architects to manage other ROI factors. Furthermore, clients expect architects to meet impossible deadlines on lower fees.
Star Built Consulting was started by a principal architect looking for ways to solve the problems that were affecting his practice. This meant talking to everyone who touched the industry: talking to clients about what they really wanted, discussing with contractors the realities of building, and discussing how to protect the firm with attorneys. Through this research, the inefficiencies, gaps in service, and liabilities for the industry as a whole revealed themselves.
A Desire to Help
Mike realized that his company was not the only architectural firm dealing with these issues. Clients everywhere seemed to be frustrated and contractors blamed ill defined drawings on the architects ineptitude. Both of these issues fed the cases that attorneys brought against architects most often. This seemed like a plague that ran rampant in the industry, and needed to be eradicated. Thus Architectural Business Strategy was formed to find answers to the problem that afflicted architectural practice.
