Top Architects related questions
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 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.
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.
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.
