Why hire a Licensed Architect for your Project?

Hiring a licensed architect is an essential part of any construction project. Architects are trained professionals who specialize in designing and planning buildings, and their expertise can help ensure that your project is successful. Here are some of the reasons why it is important to hire a licensed architect for your project:


  1. Compliance with Building Codes: A licensed architect is trained in building codes and regulations. They will ensure that your project complies with all applicable codes, ensuring the safety and well-being of everyone involved in the project.

  2. Design Expertise: Architects are experts in design and can help you create a functional and aesthetically pleasing space that meets your needs. They can work with you to create a design that is both beautiful and functional, taking into account your budget and timeline.

  3. Cost-Effective Solutions: Architects can help you save money by finding cost-effective solutions for your project. They can provide you with advice on materials and construction techniques that will help you achieve your goals while staying within your budget.

  4. Project Management: Architects can also help manage your project, ensuring that it stays on schedule and within budget. They can work with contractors and other professionals to ensure that the project is completed on time and to your satisfaction.

  5. Liability Protection: By hiring a licensed architect, you can protect yourself from liability issues that may arise during the construction process. Architects carry insurance that covers errors and omissions, ensuring that you are not held liable for any mistakes or oversights that may occur during the project.

In summary, hiring a licensed architect is crucial for any construction project. They bring expertise in design, building codes, cost-effective solutions, project management, and liability protection. Investing in a licensed architect can save you time, money, and stress, and ensure that your project is completed successfully.


Flow is a culturally diverse architectural ecosystem where everyone has a voice and a shot at making a better world through the use of materials, form, and space. Our design philosophy is fueled by the strengths and skills each partner brings into the table to achieve a common purpose: great and impactful architecture for humanity. The process is essentially an organized oasis of resources working in harmony via thoughtful collaboration.

Flow is rooted in the dream of the firm's founding partners to make a place for those without a place in the AEC industry. This dream became an obsession, and it sparked momentum when the firm was invited to participate in the 2019 Licensing Advisors Summit hosted by the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards in Minneapolis. This is where NCARB shared a picture of the board members from all states and jurisdictions and none of them was a person of color. Michael Armstrong, CEO of NCARB, acknowledged that this was a problem and that they did not know what to do about it. Flow founding partner Darguin Fortuna believed that was a problem too and that the firm FLOW would insight change over the years.

Our Company is based out of the North Shore in Salem, Massachusetts. We serve Local, National, and International clients. We have licensed Architects in MA, ME,NH, CT, PA & FL.
