The only place to go and get design/drawings/permits

We are currently building our second design of Rocco's. Both of our experiences (one small addition of a deck and stairs and the current rear addition/garage conversion) were so positive, I want everyone who wants to renovate to use him. He is so knowledgable, he thought of things I hadn't and when we called a large contract/design service for a second opinion they didn't even know half the things Rocco did....so beware those big design firms!! I recommend Architalcan Design for any of your renovation drawings for permit and even for layout and design. It will be a prompt, informed and super positive experience!

Commercial & Residential Drawings

Rocco has twice helped us and both times were great experiences. The first time was for a main floor commercial renovation and the second was for the 2 residential units above.
Both times he was prompt in responding, quick to act and delivered what we spoke about. He is very to the point and makes sure to let you know what is feasible and what isn't.
The turn around time was great and him being able to handle everything for you is very relieving.
I would not be hesitant to use him again or recommend him to someone else.

Basement walkout drawings and permit - Highly Recommended !!!!

Rocco has helped me on a few projects, and always done top-notch work.
The lastest job that he helped me with was a basement walk-up to the backyard.

As always, he was professional, knowledgeable, and straight-to-the-point. He designed my basement walkout with my input, and got approval from the city for the permit, without any hassle and much sooner than I had expected.

I have dealt with over 50 different Contractors over the course of the last 5 or 6 years, and have had some good, and some not so good experiences. Rocco is definitely the cream of the crop within his field. It is always a pleasure to work with him, and I can relax knowing that I am in good hands.

I highly recommend Rocco to anyone looking for assistance with a Residential design project !!!

Highly responsive and great problem solvers

We loved working with Rocco and his team. Rocco was incredibly responsive as we moved through the process and had great ideas to problem solve design elements that came up. Their price was reasonable and their ongoing attention to detail was fantastic. He made the permit process so simple and everything was approved without a hitch. I highly recommend them.

Spa Business Interior Alteration

I have had two projects for two major business renovations for Spa interior alterations each over 300k projects. Rocco was excellent with getting our designs and building permits completed quickly and with good quality.

Basement underpinning engineering

Rocco was excellent. He delivered on time, did great work, and gave me a lot of support working through the approvals process (there were zoning and compliance issues). He also gave great restaurant recommendations in Rome.

2.5 Storey Home Architectural Plans

I came off of working with another company and had a terrible experience.

Rocco was able to get my project back on track! We completed the plans and got our permits shortly after. Once we opened the walls we realized we needed to make small adjustments to the plan, Rocco was able to accomodate and re-submitted to the city so that our project stayed on time.

gutting the house

Rocco was terrific. He was very responsive to our suggestions and ideas and made the whole process simple. He offered strong advice on the important things like ventilation, insulation, and structural support. It was easy to work with him.

Permit drawings for a new house

Rocco is amazing

I was stuck for several months and used the services of 2 separate architects unsuccessfully prior to using Roco. My lot is tiny and there were several issues to deal with. Rocco had the drawings completed and verbal approval from the building department in less than a week. LESS THAN A WEEK
Rocco knows how to get the job done right. He is extremely knowledgable and has a highly technical mind and a fantastic sense of design. Rocco saved the day.
It is clear that he loves what he does and only produces his best Work. It was a pleasure working with him.
