Why use an Architect?
Architects can save you money.
A well designed building can have higher long term value and lower running costs. Architects try to create flexible solutions to change with you avoiding further costs.
Architects can reduce worry.
Architects can manage the design and construction process for you, guiding you through the decisions that need to be made, working in consultation and agreement with you.
Architects offer a flexible service, you can find an architect locally who can either give you an hour's consultation, carry out a feasibility study, take a scheme to submission for planning permission, undertake detail drawings or manage an entire project for you from beginning to end. The choice is yours.
Architects give you confidence.
Architects are highly trained professionals, required to undertake Continuing Professional Development to keep up to date with the latest developments in the field. Chartered architects are bound by a professional code of conduct.
