Do I need an Architect?

If you are thinking of having a house built from scratch or any other type of building project such as turning a bedroom into a bathroom or a garage into a bedroom, a loft conversion, or a complete redesign of a room, then you will more than likely need the expert advice of an architect. An architect will listen to your ideas & plans and put these into action by implementing some professional design plans. Once these designs have been drawn up they will need to be sent to the council for planning permission (if planning is required) and then the waiting process begins.

However an experienced architect will be fully aware of the local building regulation so if you appoint the right architect this should be pretty smooth sailing on your side, however waiting for the plans to come back from the council may take a while if they have a lot of applications.

Once you get the go ahead and you have your builders in place the architect will run through the plans with the builders to make sure they fully understand what the project entails and then the work commences. The actual construction side of the project can be very messy especially if you living in the house whilst the work is being carried out. Many people, if the project is big, choose to live in another house, because the construction project may take 1 year or more to complete. 

If you’re considering having your home built from scratch or redesign of a room then be sure to hire a professional architect firm. www.ArchitectChin.com is  a professional company with an extensive portfolio.
