ODA Architecture approaches master planning as more than maximizing a site’s potential. We interpret a client’s vision, while blending sensitively with the community, its present and long-term goals.
Site Selection Evaluation
Developers often consider several sites for their projects. ODA Architecture assists with the analysis to help determine the optimum site that will maximize their goals and provide them with the best return on their investment.
Programming and Feasibility Studies
Before starting design, ODA Architecture will help to create the program or “game plans” for the project. Extensive research and interviews, along with stakeholder charettes, help outline the physical needs of the project and the aspirational vision of the community.
Many sites are not zoned correctly, and the owner is faced with a frustrating rezoning process. ODA Architecture can help the process run smoothly through thoughtful design, community workshops, and planning board negotiations to help achieve compromise leading to the most appropriate solution for the neighborhood.
Our goal is to achieve FUNomenal Design for our clients. Architecture should entail thoughtful design and buildings that tell a story and provide a unique individual identity.
To help great designs come to life, ODA Architecture provide an accurate and thorough set of construction drawings and specifications. It is of prime importance to understand hundreds of codes and regulations that govern the construction and safety of buildings.
Building codes and permitting processes are complex and often require interpretations by the Architect. ODA Architecture has experts that make sound code interpretations to protect the health, safety, and welfare of the occupants.
Construction of a building is a team effort, as construction is not an exact science. ODA Architecture orchestrates the process in a professionally efficient manner. The architect interprets the drawings and works closely with the contractor to ensure that the owner’s vision is carried through all details.
Historical Tax Credit Consulting
Preservation matters. Clients can benefit from preserving a building and transforming it into a new development. The National Parks Service and State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO) provide tax incentives to projects that uphold and preserve the historic character of buildings. ODA Architecture successfully assists our clients through the tedious approval process on both the National and State levels
Light. Color. Curves. Texture. ODA Architecture presents clients with innovative interior concepts that are meaningful and intriguing. Every space in the building deserves to encompass thoughtful design concepts.
Repurposing Existing Buildings
The intended use of many buildings is no longer valid and the buildings are underutilized. ODA Architecture enjoys breathing new life into the buildings. Repurposing existing buildings is less than the cost of new construction and it is eco-friendly to avoid new construction and to densify existing developments.
