Forty Under 40

Owner & Architect

Bonsai Design + Build / Denver

2019 Revenue: $3 Million

  Staying on budget:   We operate on a cost-plus basis. When we present a budget to a client, we also present a fee that’s assessed to the cost. If we fail to adequately budget, we can get in trouble. To protect against that, we give clients a concept service. We conceptually design the project—site plans, floor plans, elevations—and put them into a set of drawings. We charge a small fee for that. Once we have the concept package in place, we budget. Because we understand the project so well by then, we can budget very accurately. We have not gone over budget for three years.
