Benefits of employing an architect

While many people are adept at managing their home renovation or conversion, for others the very idea of taking control of every aspect of a project from beginning to end is a nightmare – especially when there’s considerable structural or planning work involved.

From initial thoughts to firm designs, submitting plans for the necessary permissions, sourcing both contractors and materials, and then the living Tetris puzzle that is project managing, there is a lot to consider. Budgets frequently spiral and get out of control, even with a built-in buffer as contingency. It’s no surprise that thousands of people lean on architects to help them, but what kind of assistance can they get?

Getting the home you want

Again, with flexible servicing, you can then take it the rest of the way yourself. But if you’ve got a busy life, you can also opt for project management, with fully-qualified architects drawing up agreements with set timescales and costs for builders. This ensures there’s no overlap, no pausing works because the plaster isn’t dry when the painter arrives.

You can check in to how the work is going not just by checking it over yourself, but by accessing an online portal that will let you check documents, see what is happening next and which invoices have been delivered and paid.
