When should an architect become involved?

By appointing an architect early on, it is possible to explore and discuss the feasibility of different options and maximise the potential of the site. The time invested in design enables the building work to be completed more efficiently and reduces the risk of expensive alterations during the construction phase.

What is an architect?

Architects have successfully completed an extensive course relating to technical and aesthetic aspects of building design and passed stringent professional examinations. It is illegal for someone to falsely claim in writing that they are an architect, and architects must be registered with the Architects Registration Board (ARB).

I cannot easily understand two-dimensional drawings. How can I see what a design will actually look like?

Most people find it difficult to translate plans and elevations into built reality. To help our clients better comprehend the implications of design decisions, we often provide three-dimensional sketch drawings of proposals from different viewpoints.

Why use an architect?

Architects are building designers who are trained to provide practical and cost-effective solutions which at the same time enhance the built environment, accommodate your living requirements and make efficient use of resources. Good design is a good investment.
