What should I consider before choosing an Architect?

Here are some points to consider when hiring an Architect:

  • It is important that the architect is registered and provides you with a portfolio of work with recent images. It is also recommended to complete a site visit where the architect might point out the particular features of that project.

  • Architects need to monitor the project throughout so it is also important that they have a good working relationship with experienced contractors.

  • Some architectural services firms only do international work. If you have a small project, you might want to consider a small firm that can give you its full attention.

  • Your local professional should work with you on your creative ideas and ensure that you get the best value for money for your budget.

How long will an Architectural Project take?

A building project might take just six months or a couple of years to complete. Make sure you choose an architecture firm that you will be comfortable working with for the long term. You may meet an architect you like in the initial meeting phase but when the project gets underway, you may be working more closely with a different colleague. Make sure you know which individuals you will be working with throughout your project.

Do you need planning permission for a side return?

A side return extension is considered to be permitted development (PD). It does not need planning permission as long as the extension is within two metres of a boundary and the maximum eaves height is no higher than three metres.

How much do Architects cost?

Hiring an architectural services firm is a great investment as it can help increase the value of your home.

The cost will vary not according to the size of your extension and new rooms but how many floors are being changed or added.

Costs will normally include the design advice, on-site survey, professional CAD drawings, drawing amendments, planning applications and planning revisions.

Your expert architectural services firm will be able to help make the changes you are looking for or create a new build. They will also be able to answer any questions you may have. Use Bark to get free quotes and find a qualified architect today.

What should I look for in an Architect?

Architects need to be fully qualified, which involves five years at a university recognised by the Architects Registration Board (ARB) and have completed a minimum of two years’ practical experience.

Most architects then apply for Chartered Membership from the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA).

What can Architects help with?

Architectural services firms can provide complete drawing and design services, submit planning applications, check building regulations, undertake Structural Engineer calculations for loft conversions, extensions, internal alterations and new builds.

Architects also manage the entire process with the local authorities and should keep clients informed of the progress of their application along the way.

What do you love most about your job?

Mostly I love the variety, every day is different when you are an Architect. Starting a new project is always exciting, however big or small. There is also great sense of satisfaction when work is completed and clients are happy.

What inspired you to start your own business?

Many things! Having worked in practice for 10 years, it is nice to be able to learn from this and do things my way in my own practice. Being a sole trader also gives me the opportunity to better balance my work and family life, so if little ones need attention in the afternoon, my work can get done when they have gone to bed!

Why should our clients choose you?

Having technically been my own first private client, extending and fully renovating my own house, I understand what it is like to go through the process from both sides. I also want what is best for the client and their property, I would never force expensive ideas on anyone for the sake of my own portfolio. I have diverse experience which I can apply to any domestic or commercial project and offer flexibility in how involved I can be in the full process from concept sketches and 3D models, through construction work to paint colours and flooring choices!

Tom and Sophie came to replace a kitchen cupboard door today. They were prompt, efficient and very respectful of my property. Very happy with their service.
