What Does an Architect Actually Do?
May 6, 2019
Architects – multi-skilled professionals
Contrary to popular opinion, an architect is much more than just a designer of buildings. In fact, architects are highly skilled professionals. They require a minimum of five years’ university training, practical experience and to sit a registration exam.
What does an architect’s job involve?
Building a new home, or even extending your existing home is likely to be the largest investment you will ever make. As such, we recommend you start by consulting one of our registered architects.
An architect will do much more than simply design your new home. They create environments – designing a comfortable, stylish home you and your family will call home for years to come.
Designing a unique, personalised modern home can be quite a complex process. However complex your needs and desires, you can rest assured our experienced architects will produce inspired solutions.
After all, creative thinking, functional performance and paying meticulous attention to detail underpin everything your architect does.
What separates an experienced architect from other builders?
Architects have highly specialised knowledge. This knowledge allows them to:
- plan for optimal environmental performance
- advise you on the perfect location for your new home on your property to improve your view, increase aspect, catch the sun, provide shade, promote natural, cross-flow breezes, as well as reduce and conserve energy.
How can an architect help you?
Architect-designed modern and acreage homes are in high demand among home buyers who are willing to pay for quality design.
And, an experienced architect will manage the entire planning, design and construction process. They will help you set and monitor a realistic budget, guide you through town planning and council requirements, get competitive quotes for the labour, manage consultants (i.e. engineers and surveyors) and draw up the construction contract.
And, for added peace of mind, your architect will inspect the work at every stage through the construction process. This ensures you’ll receive the quality and level of finishes you expect.
Are you planning to build a new modern or acreage home? Or, do you want to build a modern extension for your existing home? If so, call or email the experienced All Image Architects team today for a quote.
