I work to a client’s budget everyday. In design it is about what the owner wants, creatively composed to what they can afford.
In architecture school I honed my ‘think outside the box’ skills. Running my own residential practice brings it all back to money...the client’s money.
As a Councillor it is about asking the residents and businesses what they want and using their rates as the budget to deliver it.
Pictured below are before and after photos of a recently completed ‘common area enhancement’ project. I was the project manager. There were 8 existing units (12 owners plus some tenants) to get to agree to numerous decisions and coordinate the works. We came under budget while getting everything on their list (including landscaping) and everyone is still friendly to each other!
