Architecture Services by Unthank Design Group


Architectural drawings communicate all of your needs and wants to your builder.  Unthank Design Group is an architectural design firm, and therefore we custom design each and every practice based on very thorough development of your Design Program (see Programming). It is essential that we are able to develop with you an understanding of all aspects of exactly how you intend to practice. Our work process integrates architecture and interior design simultaneously, incorporating the function and aesthetic style throughout the design. The first drawing developed is your schematic plan. This floor plan, based on your Design Program, maximizes the efficiency of square footage, utilizes appropriate zoning of public to private functions, and creates unimpeded flow for patients and staff. 

Beyond the schematic floor plan, comprehensive construction documents incorporate all desired design aspects needed to competitively bid and successfully build your project.  Unthank Design Group provides a detailed architectural floor plan, reflected ceiling plan, lighting plan, power/data plan, cabinetry elevations and sections, and the additional details, schedules, specifications, and notes needed to complete your project and fulfill your expectations with a minimum of change orders. This architectural design process of identifying everything the contractor is to provide within the new office is the only way to conduct the ‘competitive’ process of obtaining bids to construct your new office, and likewise, the only way to insure your complete pricing.  We believe in building your office on paper first!

Larger new building projects are more complicated and may require the services of a local architectural professional. Unthank Design Group will partner with a local architect, and prior to your agreement for services with them, decide upon a defined scope of services (for each entity) which is in your best interest.
