Architect reviews in Indianapolis

Real People ~ Real Reviews ~ Real Results

  • Adam is a creative professional with a keen eye for exceptional design. He provided us with expert guidance in designing our new kitchen and bath. Our meetings with him were focused and productive and he provided us with excellent drawings for our building project. We should finish our project by early spring 2019. I highly recommend using Adam Gibson Design.
    - Cris R.
  • The whole process was seamless for all four projects. He met me at our house in the evenings as my schedule allowed. He completed all projects in the time frames he promised. He quoted accurate pricing, and the final designs and drawings were well worth the cost. Several suggested design changes both improved the end result and provided cost savings. He followed up after completing the designs to make sure all our questions were answered, and to check on the project status. He easily worked with the contractor who did our home addition, as well as another contractor who remodeled our rental home.
    - David B.
  • We contracted with Mr. Puzzello to help us move our house to a new location. He had 4 months to complete the drawings and get the permits for the construction of the garage and basement. When the time came he was not ready and could not get the permits. After 3 weeks we lost the house move we had lined up. Then the weather went very bad and that was the beginning of a long series of problems. Simple things like placement of basement windows were wrong and had to be fixed. Contractors he recommended were very bad. Do not use this guy. You'll regret it.

  • Wayne did an excellent job going through different options and problems solving with us. Ultimately, we decided not to pursue remodeling due to other factors, but we would certainly work with Wayne again. He was thorough and patient with a young couple trying to figure out how to add more space to their home.
    - Adam H.
  • He did a wonderful job. We couldn't have been happier with his service. He came to our house more than once, he listened carefully to what we wanted, and he was always available when we tried to get in touch with him. He was very professional, patient, and easy to work with. We were very pleased with the result as the contractors were able to easily follow his sketch.

  • This builder is also a licensed architect, and drew the plans for the entire renovation and addition. Due to revised property setbacks in Meridian Hills, we had to go through a long ( a few months) variance request process with the Town of Meridian Hills and the City of Indianapolis. Mr. Marks attended all meetings with me and assisted with information that expedited the approvals. His professionalism and architectural knowledge greatly reduced my stress and provided quality information to the decision makers for them to confidently approve the proposal in spite of the unique property setting. By the time the variance was approved it was winter, but he offered several solution options so we could begin the process. His crew literally worked "around" the weather, moving the project forward.

    If you like detailed, quality work, this is the company! Mr. Marks literally looked at every board for wood quality and straightness. We observed him doing this many times when he would not have been aware of our attention. His crew was on time, on the job daily, courteous, and mirrored Mr. Marks great attention to detail. We loved working with his team. They were very professional and the work was performed meticulously. Artistic and pristine are other words that comes to mind. Their work is not about speed, it is about quality. They are in fact some of the most thorough workers I have ever seen.

    This job required the full scope of building talent - foundation work, full exterior brick and stone masonry (fabulously done), framing, drywall, insulation, sub-floor, roofing, hardwood flooring, complex tile work, window installation, plumbing, furnace, electrical, gas, and sewer lines. It involved the installation of beautiful kitchen cabinets with lighting, and a 10 ft. island, with quartz countertops, crown molding throughout, a large shelved walk-in pantry, and a full complement of appliances installed.

    I particularly liked the billing method PRM uses. Billing is every Thursday, with a detailed list of completed work. itemizing material and labor for each completed segment. This is based on the original itemized quote, and the consumer can track exactly where the project is in the completion cycle. There is always a cover sheet with a clear list of payments and percentage of completion compared to the original quote. This method creates a predictable plan of expense for the consumer and spreads the project cost out, rather then in the old traditional method used by most builders (1/3 prior to start, 1/3 in the middle, and 1/3 at the end). The PRM method allowed me to make changes (additions and deletions) easily with this billing method.

    Setting expectations is also very critical in this type of process, and PRM does an excellent job, sometimes addressing hard choices. I always felt Mr. Marks was responsive and fair, even when I didn't always agree. He provided a professional opinion and allowed me to decided. But, he also stood firm at times when the outcome could create a future liability for him or me.

    Mr. Marks knows his industry, is diplomatic and respectful of the client, mirroring their respect of him. I am so proud of my beautiful home and would highly recommend this company.

  • Wayne did the initial consultation on my project.  He spent more than the initial 2 hours discussing the scope of the project and details of different approaches to possible solutions to the issues.  His knowledge and expertise were evident throughout our discussion.  He recognized the issues and developed solutions that were appropriate to my house and style.  Ultimately, I hired Wayne to do the full project.  The work included detailed drawings, measurements, electrical plans, demolition specifications etc.  Really, I felt we addressed most of the details before the project started, so there were very few surprises. He also provided me some names of contractors he had worked with before that would be a good fit for this project.  I couldn't have been happier with the ultimate choice.  Wayne's work was technically completed once we started the demolition, but he still touched base to make sure everything was going as planned and that I didn't have any problems or concerns with the project.  He stopped by near the end of the project just to confirm that it was going as he expected too.  Although the kitchen has a few small details to finish up, everything went great and Wayne was a big reason for it going so well.
    - Diane E.
  • He is professional and has a lot of talent when it comes to design. Everything he has done, has been done to a degree of excellence and has exceeded our expectations. We have a lot of money invested and he really takes the time to make sure we are always in the loop and are comfortable at all time during the project.
    - Merrill B.
  • Wayne was great!  He came up with an idea we had not though of which was a functional use of the space.  We implemented his plan and we are thrilled with the outcome.  He followed up and checked in with us throughout the project.
    - JACOB & BETSY H.
  • It is still going, but we have been very pleased with Wayne.   He is very professional (timely, responsive, knowledgeable) and he has high expectations of himself and others that he refers to work on the job.   We found Wayne through Angie's List and his outstanding ratings were well deserved.
