Myler's Design / Architectural Services
These are several value added benefits that Myler's associate team of architects includes in its basic design, architectural, and engineering services and fees for which other architects will charge you extra to the basic fees they quote you.
Architectural Induced Change Orders
According to industry statistics, architectural induced change orders will add an average of 7% more to the cost of your project. This type of change order is caused by the lack of clarity in the architectural working drawings and creates unanticipated extra costs to you during construction. These change orders usually do not create added value for you, but are merely extra costs. What does this mean to your church? With many other architectural and contracting firms, you will pay an average of 7% or more architect fees for architectural induced change orders and will end up paying a general contractor an average of 7% or more than the original bid price contract amount. Most churches just aren't able to take this kind of financial risk.
What does Myler do for you? Myler Church clients are not saddled with the costs of architectural induced change orders. When Myler gives you a Guaranteed Contract Price, your contract price will not increase.
Program Planning Report
With the typical AIA architectural contract, you as a church are totally responsible for doing your own planning. There is usually a cost of $4,500 to $7,500 to your church if you request the architect to assist you in this task.
The planning process of determining the right type of facility to build, the right amount of space to build, and setting a building budget within what your congregation can afford is critical to the success of your project. Because the planning process is so critical in getting your building program off on the right foot, Myler is willing to invest our own time and money to assist you with this crucial planning process.
Master Planning Costs
Most architects will charge you $5,000 or more for master planning services. At no obligation or cost to your church we invest our own money in producing this vital and integral master plan for your church.
Color Rendering Costs
Most architects will charge you $1,500 or more for a color rendering. We invest our own money in providing a colored rendering for your church. The color rendering and 3-D Fly Around are tools to communicate to the congregation the church's vision. Jesus spoke in parables, because we are visual people, and so the best way to get both financial and prayer support is to let your members see what they are investing in.
3-D Fly Around
Most architects will charge you between $5,000 to $8,000 for a 3-D Animated Fly Around. Myler feels this is an important resource for you during the time you will be raising money to support your building program. We invest $5,000 to $8,000 of our own money in providing a 3-D Fly Around for your church.
Architectural Travel Expenses
Architects' contracts have a provision for being reimbursed for travel expenses to and from your project. This can amount to an average of $2,000 to $5,000 or more of extra costs to you. Myler invests our own money in traveling to and from your project
Myler's Design Philosophy
Consideration is given not only to the initial building costs, but also to the cost of maintaining and operating the facilities over the next 50 or more years. Although, initial construction costs are important, long-term maintenance and operational costs are equally important. Myler's design philosophy is to give your congregation the best long term value for the dollar invested. Our team of designers will be designing your new church facility to be highly functional and "user" friendly for your programming needs, affordable to your congregation, aesthetically attractive for your community, easy to maintain, and be cost effective for you to maintain and operate for as long as you are going to be using it. In order to accomplish this for you, during the preparation of the design, architectural and engineering construction documents, we will be including the following things.
"Your associate team of architects have done a great job of bringing our God given vision of a new sanctuary to a physical reality we can see. The building is going to fit all of our growth needs and it blends in beautifully with the community around us."
Rev. Gary G. GlanvilleNorthwest Baptist Church
"The creation of a religious property does not happen by accident or some architectural slight of hand. I have watched the designers listen and respond to the needs of the parishioners of St. Joseph's parish with a plan that honors the liturgical and aesthetic components of the project without overlooking the financial implications. This is what distinguishes Myler from others - close attention to details and the economy of the project."
Richard S. Vosko, Ph.D.Designer & consultant for Worship Environment
"Thank you for the patience and cooperation exhibited by the architectural staff in working with our various committee throughout the process of designing and developing the architectural plans for our new worship facilities. The plans are of excellent quality and, once built, our new facilities will be very functional, attractive to our community, and should be easy and inexpensive for us to maintain and operate."
Straud S. CarltonChairman Building and Steering CommitteeByne Memorial Baptist Church
"This is one of the finest sets of drawings we have seen. The clean lines and details make it easy for us to do our take-offs. This allows us to be very precise in our pricing and more competitive in our bid to the church. And it sure makes it a lot easier to install our portion of the project!"
