Why book a local architect through Airtasker?

Designing and building a house or commercial building is no easy task; you’ll need someone with the right education, skills and experience to help you pull off this massive project. But don’t worry, Airtasker can connect you with the right experts when you need to find an architect or the appropriate architectural designers.

Our platform can be beneficial if this is your first time to have a home or building designed and you don’t know where to begin. Don’t bother with online ads or making several trips to meet with different architectural firms - just put up the task!

Remember to include your needs and budget in your post to get qualified Taskers to come to you. You may receive enquiries and free quotes from several Taskers - but don’t accept just any offer. Take the time to see reviews and ratings on each Tasker, then book the one you think has the best qualifications. Confirm your choice, then set an appointment to get started on your project. So go on, use that pink button and turn your ideas into reality.

Get the best architects in your area

After each completed task on our site, you’re given the option to rate and review your worker. You’ll be able to easily compare local architects who have completed a project and see what others think of their work.

Easy research

Rather than going out to find and compare architects, Airtasker brings professional designs straight to your inbox.

Don’t break the bank

Building projects are expensive pursuits, however on Airtasker you set the budget. When you post your task, you say how much you’re willing to pay and local architects apply based on that figure.

Find insured architects

Because of the importance of an architect’s work, it’s vital that they’re fully insured. All tasks on our site are covered for up to $10 million third party liability.

Top Architects related questions

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
