Old Saybrook Architects from people just like you.

Intinarelli is a master of design and construction. He has a background in construction and project management so all of these dynamics" dynamics are in play. The first set of plans needed some fine tuning, so he revised them and nailed it on the second round. He even provided me a plan to build it with a concrete slab floor. We were so satisfied, we hired him to design a plan to finish our basement with an office, play and family room and work out room. He came out and measured everything and we are now reviewing these plans. He can even show you a virtual tour of how the finished space will look! Thanks


"The price
quoted was reasonable and the project came in at budget. With his “open Book” policy, we knew exactly where each dollar" went. The work was completed within the time frame
had set and we couldn’t be more pleased with the result. There was excellent communication along every step of the process. His men arrived when they said they would and kept everything as clean as they could while they were there, minimizing dust and dirt as much as possible & tried to interrupt our lives as little as possible. They cleaned the work areas before they left. I had no concern about leaving the house when they were there, and felt they were completely trustworthy. We highly recommend
& Build, and would hire them again in a heartbeat.

Angie's Answers


Assuming this is new single family residential

makes the answer more simple.

Small towns = small fees and ability to trunkate the voulme of plans required to insure a good job.  It's from this perspective I'll attempt to corral these wild horses, answers architect have given prior.


Always attempt to get a by-the-hour rate, never a $/sf - they know how to play the game better than you in the latter and the former honesty is guaranteed by their state license board.


Never accept draftsmen to be placed in charge of your project, regardless of architect, engineer, surveyor, etc. even though rates may be charged lower, the product quality is even less than these charges with plenty of errors/omissions/oversights in planning when the licensed overseeer gets busy on other projects.


If you like the projects produced, obtain favorable references, then the hourly rate should be $60-120/hr small town.  No, you don't associate cost vs quality.  Look at overhead, employees ... if pronounced, then your fees go to pay for all these = less money/time devoted to your project.


Architect first - for around $1000 typically you will get site consultation, a few sketches showing what you said you wanted, and a preliminary (by the book) cost estimate - that you can use to figure if your budget or scope of work needs major adjustment. Then, if you go ahead, typically about 10-20% of total project cost for complete plans and specs (including above cost), depending on complexity and level of interior design detail, and if construction inspection services are included.


Generally, nothing is free with an architect - unlike a contractor where a bit of consultation and a rough estimate is a lead-in to the actual work he hopes to get (the construction/repair) and part of his bidding cost, an architect (and engineer) makes his living giving advice and consultation and developing designs and cost estimates - so giving it away for free is sort of like a dentist doing sample fillings for free. Some will come to your house to discuss your concepts for 15-20 minutes for free, basically to see if they want to take you on as a client or feel your job is the type or size they want, but you should expect little or nothing in the way of a design or cost estimate for free - the most you might get would be an opinion on whether it sounds, off the cuff, like your budget is roughly in line with your desired scope of the project.
On more complex or up-scale remodels, it is not unusual to contact several architecture firms and request proposals - where they basically come see the site, then give you a sketch or few or more common today, computer-generated altered photos of your place, showing conceptually what they can do for you, then you choose the one you like the most and go with that one for final design. Typically $500-1000 range fee (each) to get that done for small jobs, larger jobs will typically be no charge but that assumes probably $25-50,000 plus anticipated fees if they get the job.
Bear in mind in the latter scenario you cannot pick and choose betweenthe best parts of each proposal - the architect owns the design and it is copyrighted, so while you can choose bui9lding elements (dormers, bay windows, etc) from any of the proposals, specific design or color combinations are copyrighted by the proposer.

Architect reviews in Old Saybrook


The deck project is important to my family and Ed is very attentive to our wishes. We look forward to family gatherings on our deck for years to come with both beautiful and durable materials.
- gerard M.

Old Saybrook Architects Provider Name Locked
did an excellent job in this project. He provided valuable design suggestions, and executed the plan all the way to the end.
Because the project involves many "small jobs", some times he would like to "batch" some of them together, instead of finishing one as soon as possible. This is quite understandable, no complaints. :)
Due to project requirement,
Old Saybrook Architects Provider Name Locked
also introduced to us an architect and a plumber, both did very good job.
- Zhenyu W.

Old Saybrook Architects Provider Name Locked
was punctual, friendly and well-prepared. He had already done research on specifics like local lot set-back requirements so we were ready to get down to the "meat" of the discussion.
Old Saybrook Architects Provider Name Locked
was attentive to drawing out our actual needs and wants. We walked about the house discussing a number of creative options, with their upsides and downsides. We honed down to what became
Old Saybrook Architects Provider Name Locked
's recommendation, which we will implement.
Some may ask why hire an architect to think about something as mundane as a garage? Well, we felt we needed a professional unbiased opinion about where and how to approach the project.
Old Saybrook Architects Provider Name Locked
is a consummate professional that gave us excellent guidance as well as a bit of education. He exceeded our expectations!
- Peter M O.

I cannot say enough about how Pat's positive approach enabled a plan to be formulated according to what I needed to have done to feel comfortable with my home. Her willingness to delve into the city's guidelines for property development assured me that the plans would be in line with what could be done. She is knowledgeable, thorough, and pleasant to work with in moving towards one's goals.
- Ann D.

The design process with
Old Saybrook Architects Provider Name Locked
went very well.
Old Saybrook Architects Provider Name Locked
is efficient with his work, and his design did not have any issues during the permitting process with the City or the construction process with the Contractor. We would plan on using
Old Saybrook Architects Provider Name Locked
on our next project.

We needed a new backsplash in the kitchen for a fairly large area. We needed it done quickly for a birthday party. Ed came by and helped us decide what tile would look best and gave us a great price for the amount of work. The guys came in, tore out the old tile and removed all the debris. They patched the drywall, cut tile to fit around several outlets and corners. Then the guys did a beautiful job installing the tile. They cleaned up and wiped down the counters. Very professional and everything went very smoothly.
- Scott R.

G ARC did an excellent job with the design. They are very experienced as well as creative. They listened carefully to our requirements and feedbacks, identified the core design issues and needs, and prioritized our goals. We have a limited budget. Their design achieve our both functional and aesthetic goals in a cost-effective way, which I really appreciate.
They are professional too. They arranged regular meetings to allow us to review the design progresses and made sure everyone is on the same page. They explained the design in a way that laymen could understand. One thing I have to mention is that, they use photo realistic renderings and animations to visualize the final looking of the restaurant, which is SO easy for us to understand (I am not very good at reading plans and elevations). In addition, they brought us to showrooms to see the real products or ordered material samples that could be used in the project, which helped us to make decisions with confidence. On top of this, they care about every detail to make sure they work.
- Juan S.

I purchased a coupon off of Angie's list for a backsplash for $499. After picking out tile from Home Depot and scheduling the appointment a man from
Old Saybrook Architects Provider Name Locked
came to install. He tried to begin but his saw was not working to cut the tile he hung around for two hours waiting to get direction from the office as what to do. They ended up rescheduling someone else to come out. A few days later two different men came and looked at what needed to be done, only to tell me they didn't have the correct tools. They left, having to reschedule a third time. The next week two new men came again without the correct tools. They felt bad and left to get what they needed to begin the job. It took them a day to complete, but it finally was begun. The next day as I am getting ready for work I get a phone call that the contractors are at my house to grout the tile. Never receiving notice a phone call or email from the office I had to call out of work sick to meet them so they could complete the job. When all was said and done upon looking at the competed backsplash I discovered a cracked tile by the sink outlet. It has been such a headache dealing with this company I chose just to leave it, I couldn't afford to take a fourth day off of work to accommodate them. I would not use
Old Saybrook Architects Provider Name Locked
again. The communication is terrible within the company and with its customers. The workers are all extremely nice and polite, it's a shame they have to deal with such unorganized management. I guess you get what you pay for, needless to say I won't be purchasing anymore Angie's list coupons.
