Top Architects related questions

Do I need to hire an architect?

If you’re going to undertake construction work, it’s important that a trained professional creates the plans. Not only does this ensure you know what you’re getting, it also means that the building will be structurally sound and meet all best practices.

What qualifications should an architect have?

Australian architects must have completed at least five years of study, a Master of Architecture and two years of industry experience. At least one of those years of work must have been done in Australia. Once this has all been done, they are eligible to apply for an architecture licence that allows them to use this title.

What’s the difference between an architect and a draftsman?

While an architect requires a license to use that title, a draftsman has usually gone through less rigorous training – often a TAFE course – that allows them to design smaller projects that do not require permits or other approvals. Often, a draftsman will work with an architect on a project.

What is a ‘registered architect’?

Some workers on Airtasker mention that they are a registered architect on their profile. In Australia, this is the same as a licensed architect, meaning they’ve completed all the requirements to legally call themselves an architect and are registered through a state body.

How long does it take for an architect to create a design?

There’s no one answer to this question. The design for an extension is usually a lot quicker than one for a whole new house, for example, but you also have to take into account an architect’s workload, any revisions you request and the construction process on top.

How much does an architect cost?

On Airtasker, the average price for architect hire is $210. The average range is from $97 to $362, but larger jobs can be more expensive.

What do architects do?

If you’re looking to build a new home, renovate your property, add an extension or even give new life to your garden, you’ll want to speak to an architect or designer before you hire a builder or landscaper.

As well as creating a blueprint for your project, architects can take care of council permits and other paperwork that may be needed first. Make sure to check that this is part of the service you’re paying for before you sign off on the project.  

An experienced architect can help to make your whole project easier, not only with building permits, but by project managing the whole construction and finding builders and other tradies to complete the work. 

Residential architects

Residential architects not only create plans for a house, granny flat or garage, they also help with all the relevant permits. You may find that some architects have a specialist area or style, while other architects offer more general services. Checking their profiles can give you an idea of the work they’ve done on similar projects. 

Draftsmen

Depending on your project, you may find that a draftsman is a better fit. Draftspeople create technical drawings that you can pass on to a builder to work with. These aren’t as well qualified as architects, and as such cannot help with projects that require a permit, however they are suitable for renovations. 

Be aware that in Queensland, draftspeople cannot work directly with a client and must be hired through an architect instead.

Landscape architects

If you’re overhauling your property, don’t forget about your garden. A landscape architect will help you to get the most from your yard, in a way that other designers or architects can for your home. From simple things like adding flower beds and reinvigorating your lawn, a landscape architect can add value to your property with decking, retainer walls and swimming pools, all done to your standards and budget.
