Business Overview

How We Got Started

I chose to work in this industry because I love design and I love the ocean, so I figured oceanfront architecture would be the perfect profession for me. It really has been.

We started in this industry in 1987.

We describe our business as Well established

Where I Studied Architecture

I received both my BS in Architecture and my Masters in Architecture from Georgia Tech

Performed some very basic work for a floor plan. Work was not true to the space and very basic for $500. Requested a copy of the work at a later date and never was given a courtesy call back. Website for this company is for Florida?
Response by Rice Architect, LLC: Dan, To clarify, Rice Architect provides commercial and architectural services along the eastern seaboard from Charleston to St. Augustine, with offices in Charleston and Amelia Island. Our second office has just completed its first year in December '17 and it has been a Great Start. We have met so many wonderful people!!! Thank you Charleston!! Now Dan, to your comment, I am very sorry that your request for additional plans was "lost" in the shuffle. I know how frustrating it can be to need something and not be able to get it quickly. While we over-performed in quickly getting to your site (same day if I recall) and completing your sketches promptly, we dropped the ball on the "second" additional delivery you requested several months later.!! While we hate to have any dissatisfied customers, I appreciate you taking the time to give us some feedback so we might continue to find ways to improve our services. Best wishes with your project, Randy Rice

Review by in Hilliard, FL
It was awesome. Randy selected the materials and the beams are top of the line. The entire project exceeded my expectations. Three load bearing pillars had to be moved out. Randy met with my construction foreman several times and made a field visit to see how the project was going. I wanted to create a WOW space and Rice Architects did just that. I would recommend Rice Architects to anyone. If I have another project, I will definitely call Rice Architect.

Absolute joy to work with; Randolph went from being a stranger to our Architect to "now" our friend. I highly recommend him, his knowledge, expertise and creativity will astound you.

Seal of Approval

What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  5. Sex Offender Search
    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
  8. Liens Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
  9. Identity Verification (SSN)
    HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
  10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
    We conduct a reverse business phone lookup to identify records matching the phone number information provided by the business.

NOTE: Member service professional information confirmed as described above may change or expire over time; while HomeAdvisor attempts to maintain accurate and up-to-date information, and confirms changes when notified, we cannot guarantee that profile and screening information is accurate. Therefore, we recommend that before working with a service professional you verify that information presented is still current and/or acceptable to you.
