Working with an architectural firm can be an exciting and daunting task for a client. When hiring one, there are so many things to consider, from how much it will cost, what the process is like, who you should lease or not hire as your architect, etc. In this blog post, I will give you some dos and don’ts of working with the best architecture firms in Singapore that will help make the process less difficult!
Dos and Don’ts
– Do hire an architect before you begin your project. It will be challenging to find the right person without doing this first, and it can also help prevent mistakes in decision-making during the building process if you choose which firm to work with early on.
-Do not skip out on a set fee when hiring an architect or design team for your home renovation/designing needs! Know what the cost will be upfront so that there are no surprises later down the road.
Architects have many different styles and price points for their services, so knowing what you want from them beforehand will lead to less confusion regarding budget expectations throughout construction timeframes – do research online about architects’ prices if they don’t give a flat rate upfront.
-Do not rely on your contractor to choose an architect for you! You should always be in control of the firm working with you, so make sure this choice falls under your jurisdiction and feel free to consult friends/family before making a final decision.
Architects are professionals and should listen carefully to your wishes before giving you their professional opinions on how best to design or construct your home renovation – do look into this beforehand when deciding with an architect!
