Construction Administration & Management
JM2 Architecture, PC offers construction related services to any new construction or addition/alteration project. Once designs are in the construction document development phase JM2 can begin providing construction management services to identify long lead time materials and assist with ordering materials to avoid construction delays. We often prepare scopes of work and conduct a competitive bid process vetting contractors required to undertake the various portions of construction work. We provide samples/submittals and shop drawing reviews to ensure the contractor and/or material suppliers are in compliance with our construction documents. We provide routine site visits and report to the client on the result of each visit to determine the contractor(s) are performing in compliance with our plans and written specifications. Having the architect intimately involved in the construction phase is an invaluable addition to the Owner Contractor team.
Zoning Analysis and Code Review
Every City, Town and Village has its own unique set of rules and restrictions. Our experience with these laws, rules, and regulations allows us to effectively apply these regulations to different aspects of the project. We offer an analysis on any property (site and existing structures) in conjunction with starting a new design project or as a stand-alone assessment for anybody looking to purchase a new property. Starting a project with a clear understanding of within right or whether or not variances are required is essential to planning a project. Our understanding of agency filing sequences and procedures ensures expeditious approvals. Similarly, New York State has a family of codes that regulate how buildings are constructed. JM2 Architecture, PC is fully familiar with these codes and implements them into our building designs saving time minimizing agency objections during plan reviews. We have successfully obtained state variance to building code provisions proven to be too onerous to our clients when other means of achieving the safety can be provided.
JM2 Architecture, PC provides site design services ranging from new design yield studies to solving site design problems on already developed sites. We often provide storm water drainage, sanitary system designs, landscape and site lighting design as part of a cohesive site plan.
With a combination of our versatile experience in styles, state of the art Revit and Photoshop software and creative mindsets, we have the ability to generate and deliver accurate artist representations of your proposed project. Whether it’s a minor addition, expansion, or a new building, we can show the projects final aesthetic potential before breaking ground. Not only does this accelerate the process, but will prevent delays and costly construction changes along the way.
3-D Modeling / Building Information Modeling
Our experienced design team offers the production of a three-dimensional computer model, for Building Information Modeling which prevents potential in-field conflicts, by coordination of trades in tight spaces before work starts. 3D modeling also gives the client a unique view of their future building prior to construction enabling virtual walk-throughs. Being able to see the building design in three dimensions is an invaluable tool for our client’s understanding of our proposed designs.
JM2 can obtain permits for new construction, demolition, wetlands, accessory apartments, garage conversions, as well as variances and health department approvals. We will collect documentation, and complete and file all necessary paperwork at the corresponding departments having jurisdiction endeavoring to receive all approvals. JM2 can also help acquire your Certificate of Occupancy, Certificate of Compliance or Certificate of Existing Use. We have a certified expediter in house and have experience within all townships across Long Island and the five boroughs.
Legalize and Maintain
Sometimes owners construct without proper approvals and permits beforehand. JM2 Architecture, PC can aid these owners in providing design and permit expediting services to resolve these matters and often avoid litigation with various agencies. We endeavor to avoid rework with our understanding of the applicable building codes and permissible exception. No project is too small.
