Why use an Architect?
If you are embarking on a building project - whatever its size - you should consult a professional. Architects are the only building professionals specifically qualified to design buildings. An architect's training, which extends over a 7 year period, features not only design but includes all other aspects affecting the creation or alteration of a building. An architect is able to manage the building project from concept to reality, or work as part of a team - in each case contributing creative qualities which lift any project out of the ordinary.
To any building project no matter how small your architect will bring three essential qualities:
Design matters: whether traditional or innovative, bold or understated, good design is not a fashion statement - it is the difference between mundane or enjoyable, dull or delightful, satisfactory or extraordinary. Anyone can create or alter a building, it takes a professional to do it with flair, imagination and style.
Value for money
Good design adds value; an architect can maximise space and light, suggest cost effective and alternative solutions, new uses for old, energy conscious designs, sustainable materials - and make sure you find the right builder at the right price - all skills which add value to the original concept through designed solutions.
Freedom from worry
Architects are not style artists, they are an essential part of the building team and experienced project managers. They can guide you through complex statutory procedures, monitor the building programme and inspect the works on site through to completion. Throughout your project you should have protection under architect's professional indemnity insurance and the reassurance that your chartered architect is abiding by a strict ethical code of conduct and professional competence.
