The Gaines Group has been a valuable resource both personally and in a business setting. My wife and I hired The Gaines Group for a design for finishing our basement. They did a fantastic job of compiling our ideas, recommending proper infrastructure details to reduce energy consumption and increase comfort both in the basement and in our overall home. Charles’ attention to detail and to planning is second to none. In the business setting, they are a fair company to work with who respect the expertise of suppliers and give powerful referrals. Overall, a pleasure to work with.

In January 2013, I contacted Charles with the Gaines Group to get an estimate on “blue prints.” My first phone conversation with Charles was informative and very pleasant. I knew right away that Charles would be our architect. My husband and I have been working with Charles for several months and the process has been so easy. Charles is an excellent communicator and has found solutions to all of our needs and wants. He is timely with his responses, makes suggestions, supportive, knowledgeable, and extremely professional. Charles guided us through the entire process and helped us stay within our budget. Charles is definitely an expert in his field. It has been a joy to work with Charles and the entire staff at Gaines Group.

As I was planning our new home, I was finding a lot of options to weigh concerning green building practices. I consulted with The Gaines Group, PLC to learn more about those options and begin to narrow down all the options. I found them to be very accessible, well informed and objective. They gave me clear, easy to understand information that considered different construction methodology, value vs. cost, environmental impact, indoor air quality, moisture and termite barriers, etc. They were well versed on a myriad of types of insulation, hot water heating, ventilation, air flow and I’m sure other topics if I’d had questions on those. I’m really pleased to be able to consult with a local professional firm that has such breadth of knowledge and experience on green practices.

The Gaines Group, PLC was hired to be our construction team’s LEED Consultant. As a LEED AP, Charles Hendricks is very knowledgeable in every aspect of helping us through the maze of the LEED certification process…especially important as we are reaching for platinum certification. As an Architect, he is very much on top of the latest trends for “green” building and how best to incorporate efficiency into a superb design.

The Gaines Group’s approach is “cutting edge” with innovative design. I would highly recommend a consultation to learn more about what their firm has to offer.

We were looking to put an addition on the side of our house that would provide us a flexible space that today could be a play space for our children but one day possibly be an inlaw suite with kitchen and bathroom. We even wondered if this room could be a garage someday for someone else.
Charles had the vision and plan figured out for us. He guided our conversations with two builders as well. His ideas helped not only plan a functional space but also a creatively repurposeful space. He was a joy to work with and understanding of our first time building questions.
