The architect is one of the key professionals in the built environment. Whether you are building a new residence or renovating an existing structure, an architect should be your first point of contact. Experienced architects have spent many years in the industry developing their skills, have a good understanding of the building regulations and are there to guide their clients through every step of the design and building process. Understanding the client’s requirements and designing to their budget is of paramount importance. It is important for the client and architects to ask as many questions in the beginning so that the architect is better able to understand their needs and translate these into plans.

Your relationship with your architect is the making and breaking point of any project and will determine its success and length of time. This relationship is one built on trust and it is therefore imperative to work as a team with the architect to guide you through the process. Architecture is also very emotional, especially residential architecture. The architect needs to understand all the parameters of the project in order to fulfil the client’s brief successfully. The architect will then oversee the project and consult with all the other professionals involved to ensure that the project runs smoothly and according to plan.
