MJK prides itself on our full range of services that we can provide to
homeowners, from speaking the same language as the architect to minute attention to
details, MJK sets itself apart from the competition.
The kitchen is the room
likely to define the quality of the entire house. MJK takes special to
coordinate all of the intricate details to please the most discriminating aspiring
Remodels can be the most
challenging of all projects. Tenacious searches for the tile that matches "just
right" to existing tile are only one of the many tasks we provide as a standard
||First & Second Story Additions
trying to build a new floor tied to existing floors that is out of level by more than
inch! This is just one of the many challenges MJK has developed expert
procedures to ensure a first class job. Our aim is to make every addition appear as if it
were part of the original house
approaches the building of bathroom as a ritual. We have developed checklists to ensure
complete coordination of all elements, from the sink to the shower.
||Other Interior Spaces
wine cellars, billiard rooms, entertainment rooms, music rooms, green houses, just to name
a few, are the spaces MJK thoroughly enjoys creating for inspired clients
Since the 1994 Northridge earthquake, MJK has assisted dozens of
homeowners and condo associations to reconstruct their buildings. To assist with insurance
repairs, we maintain a database compiled from all the major insurance companies in
Southern California. The database allows us to provide adjusters with estimates in their
company's format. This speeds the resolution of all types of claims: earthquake, fire,
wind, and theft damage to structures
||In House Design
approach emphasizes that an architect is actively involved in building your project. To
meet this challenge, MJK has made great efforts to maintain our in-house
architectural services. Most projects can be completed with our own resources; larger
projects can be accomplished as a joint venture or possibly a Design/Build. Each project
is undertaken as a unique venture, requiring its own special attention.
Under the MJK approach, the architect is aware of day to day
construction operations and is available to give direction, as well as get updates. This
is important because building codes are interpreted on a daily basis in the field.
|CAD (Computer Aided Design) CAPABILITY
Kent's extensive background in CAD for over 15 years has led MJK to form
a separate CAD department. Utilizing AutoCAD and CADSoft on Pentium platforms, MJK
provides CAD and plotting services to architects in addition to clients. MJK
utilizes a Computer Aid Design process that develops an electronic three dimensional model
of the project. This means changes to the floor plans are automatically made to the
building elevations and sections. This saves clients money by ensuring changes are
implemented throughout the project documents.
Without an accurate plan of existing conditions, how is an Owner to understand the new
design? Record drawings are the first step in design process. MJK has the
resources to quickly document existing site conditions and provide the information in an
AutoCAD format for Architect's or Consultant's use.
We often find outside Architects are not given the budget to extensively coordinate
consultants work into the final design. Building codes are interpreted on a daily basis in
the field, but have a problem making it back to the Architect's office. One of MJK
best practices is to coordinate the work of the Consultants into the Architect's concept
to achieve the desired results. We have witnessed some of the best Architect's work
destroyed by other contractors lack of foresight and ability to interpret what the
Architect was thinking.
