Home Building designers

Why Use an home building designer or other Architect?

If you are planning to embark on a building project - whatever it’s size - then it makes sense to consult a professional. An Architect, Architectural Technologist or Building Surveyor will guide you through the building process, will share your concerns and will help you to translate your vision into reality. To any building project, an experienced home building designer will bring three essential qualities: imagination, technical expertise, and design advise.

Remove the mystery

There is often a misplaced sense of mystique about what a home building designer can do - a fear, even, that they will impose their own tastes and styles at the expense of the clients. For most residential clients nothing could be further from the truth. Step by step, by consultation and agreement, most practices will lead you through the entire process from your initial idea or requirement to the finished building.

How much does it cost?

Every home building designer will have their own method of calculating fees from a time based arrangement to a percentage fee of the contract build price. A good home building designer will offer clients a one stop shop service avoiding the bargain basement 'plans drawn'  small ads approach that can often lead to tears.

Most good home building designers are also linked to a network of trusted professional consultants that are often required (engineers, quantity surveyors etc).

Normally you can select all or part of an home building designers service. If you need just the detailed drawings, or want the scheme to be guided to the planning permission stage and no further, then that’s fine too.
