Working with an Architect for your Home

 

The first thing an architect will do is ask questions, listen and understand what you are trying to achieve.
They will work with you to develop your project brief and finalise the budget. It is essential that you agree this between you before starting the project.
A good architect will develop solutions and propose ways to reduce costs whilst coming up with a design that will increase the building’s value.
They’ll guide you through a whole range of processes  from coming up with an initial design to seeing the project through planning and construction to completion.
