Your home is one of the biggest and most important purchases you’ll ever make, so investing in a competent architect is well worth it. Lonsdale Patent Glazing & Rooflights explain how employing a creative professional is a great return on your investment.
In the UK, all architects must be registered with the Architects Registration Board and if they follow a further set of requirements, they gain recognition by the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA). Therefore, you can have complete peace of mind that your architect knows what they’re doing and by choosing a RIBA member, you know that the correct insurance and management systems are in place throughout the process.
The creative eye of an architect will produce superior designs maximising space, light and symmetry and truly capturing the essence of the building and meeting the requirements of the home owner.
A good architect will advise on necessities and suggest cost savings where possible, enabling you to keep spending to a minimum.
If a problem crops up, an experienced architect will likely have experienced the issue before and be able to solve it. They are likely to anticipate potential issues and will ensure contingencies are in place to avoid any.
In addition, architects can advise on hiring suitable contractors and draft a contract that ensures work is carried out to the required building regulations, high quality and delivered on time. This will, therefore, protect you against unwanted ‘extras’ and unexpected costs, so you know exactly how much you’re going to be paying and when. Put bluntly, without the overseeing of an architect, any building project can be extremely high risk.
Lonsdale Patent Glazing & Rooflights encourage the highest standards within the construction industry ensuring clients receive the best possible experience from beginning to end of their project.
