New Buildings

We will oversee the creation of a new building from its conceptual start to its physical completion. Our full-service office is equipped to provide comprehensive design services, product research, construction cost estimates, and bidding and contract administration.

We provide on-going monitoring of construction and a final review once construction is complete.

Renovations & Additions

Similar to our services for new buildings, we provide a full range of services to oversee the renovation of or addition to an existing building. Our office conducts a survey of the existing building and assess its condition to determine how to proceed with a renovation or addition. We take care of all stages of the renovation or addition, including design, construction bidding, construction oversight, and a review of the completed work.

Heritage Buildings / Restorations

We are equipped to work with heritage-designated buildings and other historic and older buildings. Our experience with heritage building restorations, renovations, has spanned over 20 years and encompassed a variety of buildings, including churches, government agencies, public buildings and homes.

We are one of Ontario's only architectural firms to specialize in heritage buildings.

Reports

Residential Design

For over 25 years, Allan Avis Architects Inc. has been providing residential design services to create custom homes, additions and renovations of varying sizes and scales. Whether you come to us with a design, or you need some assistance with designing the home of your dreams, we are here to partner and collaborate with you to make the process as simple as possible.

To help make the process as easy as possible, we’ve created residential design packages that include different levels of service and deliverables. If you already have plans, but need those plans turned into a set of detailed drawings for building permit submission, then the Essential Package is likely the best fit for you. On the other hand, if you would like a completely custom home from scratch, have a unique and challenging site, own a lakefront property, would like an off-the grid home or would like a design that is sustainable and energy efficient, then the premium package is likely best. With our expertise in heritage architecture and design, we also offer design services for century-old homes and heritage buildings where renovations and additions need to be sensitive to the existing heritage fabric.

We offer a fast turn-around with our Essential and Standard design packages. If you bring us a design, or layout, with or without some minor changes, we can have building permit drawings ready in 30 days or less. Give us a call today to see if we have an opening available.
