How to Choose the Right Architect for My Project?
Before beginning your project, it’s extremely important to map out your design goals and budget needs. Architects provide services ranging from a la carte consultation to full-scale house design. To help ensure your project gets off to the right start, you need to have a clear vision and understanding of how hiring an architect could impact your overall budget.
The next step is to find which of the best architects are right for your project. You can find helpful information including past projects, design ideas, and customer reviews on the Find Pros page. Architects reviews provide real feedback, so you can better choose which is the best architecture company for you.
What Do Architects Do?
In the residential world, architects provide services both simple and complex. As their expert time can be costly, your best bet to staying in line with your building budget is to hire someone only for the home design services you need. As every project will be, by its very nature, unique, it’s best to find an architectural design professional that not only sees your vision, but can work within your budget guidelines.
The following is a brief overview of some of the services architects provide. Whatever your needs, from landscape architecture to structural engineers, be sure to discuss all your options.
Preliminary and Design Development. Also known as schematic and initial design, in this service, the architect would visit the physical build site, and draws up a basic house plan based on your design ideas and budget. You can also ask for a collection of various sketch design plans. A step beyond preliminary design is design development. Here, your architect would provide detailed design plans ranging from floor plans to wall molding.
Bidding Help. Architects can give you a better sense of your contractor proposals by providing expert feedback, making revisions to the house plans as needed, and answer any technical questions from your potential contractors. They can also make recommendations on which contracting company best fits your budget, schedule, and quality needs.
A la Carte Consultation. If you’ve found a great plan online, or in an interior design collection, look to architects for basic consultation services. A professional can tweak the plans to customize them to your budget and personal flair.
