“Malcolm and Staff Were Great.  My home in Ortley Beach, NJ was destroyed by Hurricane Sandy. It took some time to gather the funding to rebuild and since I was living 200 miles away, I hired my first architect that was closer to where I was living. After an extended time – five months – I had construction drawings – or so I thought. Even though the first architect was in New Jersey and should have known the codes, builders had a difficult time doing proposals, claimed they could not apply for permits with the drawings, and said they had to be redrawn. One of the builders recommended Malcolm Burton, AIA and I am very happy with the result. Malcolm redid the design, exchanged drawings via email, and worked with me over the phone via conference calls. His detailed designer was excellent and the staff put up with my changes and questions. They certainly understood the idiosyncrasies of the local building department so that there would be minimal issues when applying for permits. They were also able to do the piling foundation design, understood new and advanced construction techniques, handled all hurricane and flood design criteria, and produced a clear and complete set of drawings. The pricing was very reasonable and the professionalism was exemplary. If I ever need any architectural work in the future, Malcolm Burton, AIA would be my choice. I highly recommend this firm.”
