Whether you are planning a large or small scale construction project, it makes sense to consult an architect. Their training puts them in the best position to advise and assist with the design. The RIBA is the professional body that regulates the profession. The ARB is the independent registration body for architects in the UK.
An RIBA chartered member can help to guide you through the design and construction process. The services offered extend beyond producing a set of drawings. They can handle the paperwork and bring value for money to the project. The design process will be paramount, whilst keeping the project on track and on budget.
Consulting at the earliest stage of a project will allow a good understanding of your requirements. This will help reduce design costs and help ensure the project comes in on time and on budget whilst identifying and reducing any potential problems early on.
