Principal, Martin Reimers has considerable experience with projects of every size. He has a long and extensive history with residential projects including speculative projects, highly customized homes, residential remodels/additions, as well as multi-family projects. Residential architecture presents many challenges and rewards as a home project has an immediate and direct impact on an individual’s life.
Commercial projects have also been a large part of Martin’s background. Having specialized in church design for many years, he has assisted church building committees from initial programming, master planning, entitlements, design, and construction to the turning over of keys. His Commercial solutions are functional, efficient, cost effective, and appropriate for a variety of uses. Martin is skilled in office, retail, restaurants, schools, child-care facilities, museums, hangars and warehousing facilities. These projects have come to his firm as new buildings, remodels, additions to existing facilities, and tenant improvements.
Martin’s thirteen years of experience in architecture is enhanced by eight years spent in construction and real estate development. A common critique of architects is their inability to understand how their buildings are actually constructed. Martin’s knowledge of the entire process from front to back enables consideration of the needs of other project team members. This experience prevents frustration and saves both time and money. Martin enjoys a positive relationship with the contractors who build his projects. His ability to understand site problems and offer meaningful and accurate assistance is a key ingredient to developing and maintaining these positive associations.
