Value of an AIA Architect
An architect is a licensed professional with the education, training, experience, and vision to guide you through the entire design and construction process, from helping you define the program of your project to helping get the most for your money.
Architects look at the big picture. They don’t just design four walls and a roof—they create total environments specific to the constraints of your site, that satisfy functional needs and are exciting, dynamic spaces in which to work and live.
Whether you are remodeling, adding on, or building from scratch, you should first consult with an architect. An architect will help ensure that you have a well-designed project that meets your needs and works with your budget and schedule. Your architect will also help you work with contractors and other construction professionals.
The American Institute of Architects
Only architects who are members of The American Institute of Architects may carry the AIA after their name. As part of their membership, AIA architects participate in ongoing continuing education over and above the State of Texas licensure requirements.
The American Institute of Architects is a non-profit professional association committed to increasing the quality and service provided by its members and to raising awareness of the value of good design. We improve the value of architecture.
