Licensed architect for light commerical addition in Anchorage, AK

Recommended Posts

I'm looking for an architect licensed and willing to do work for a potential upcoming project in Anchorage, AK.  This particular project is a pretty basic addition.  We're adding a garage between the 2 structures in this picture...

There was a very rickety garage there already but it was questionable at best.  That gap between the 2 buildings is a utility easement and recently the Municipality had to make some utility upgrades so the old garage had to be torn down.  There's now a load bearing utilidor underground so we should be good to go for building a new structure.  The commercial requirements and considerations are just a little outside my wheelhouse so I'm thinking I'm going to need to hire a suitable professional to help us out with this one. 

 

Anyway, it would be sweet if there was an architect here in Alaska using Chief that could help us with it.  Let me know if you're out there.  Thanks : )

By the way, we may not necessarily even need an architect.  It may just be that we could use an engineer willing to do a little hand holding.  I don't feel like this is something I couldn't properly design and draw up from a practical standpoint, I'm just not very familiar with the various commercial code requirements that might come into play, and the fact that we're building over an easement/utilidor is uncharted territory for us.

I THOUGHT I'D GIVE YOU A HEADS UP. Any time you need an architect or engineer it costs you. She is good though.

Ya, I totally get it.  I don't mind paying for quality in the slightest.  The expenses associated with hiring a qualified and competent architect or engineer are totally expected.  I would just prefer to find  somebody local.  If they use Chief that's definitely a bonus.  With regard to price though, I'm not looking for the cheapest but I also don't want to someone that's overpriced either.  I just want someone that comes well referred and that will treat me fairly.
