What does an architect do ?

If you are planning an extension to your building facility or a home extension,loft conversion or new build, an architect will be one of the first people you should call. They’re the ones who design your building and set the plans that the contractor will then use to construct your build. Their role is part artist, part scientist and mathematician. They look at the building use and how the space is to be utilised, they also need to consider basic safety aspects such as emergency exits, loads, and whether the building is likely to be susceptible any extremes of weather which may effect its long term existence.Nevertheless the complete spectrum of their work can be much broader than that. They’re usually the business lead consultant on a building project and may be in the end responsible for each aspect of build project from beginning to end.

Architect service cover the following details

Building Design
creating the building, based on your brief. The structure will need to comply with building regulations, local planning requirements and any relevant
limitations or constraints. They will even help with things like site selection.

Site Documentation
producing complete drawings and using technology to test the feasibility of the design. They can also prepare construction documents, translating the design style into specifications for the building team. An architect may even help and manage planning applications.

Building, Structure and Development

Architects can be involved at this level, making site visits and overseeing with project managers the construction to make certain everything goes according to plan. Different architects might prefer certain designs over another. Therefore it’s wise to see examples of an architect’s previous assignment clarify their style suits your vision before you get work underway.

Do you really need an architect?
In general yes you do, if you need planning permission for your project, you are likely to need an architect. If your build or conversion is below
£30, 000 you may not need the full services of an architect and a builder would suffice. it’s important to keep in mind that your building service provider is likely to have formal training in this area. Architects will offer advice on smaller projects to ensure you don’t make any costly mistakes. Many architects will give you an one -off consultation which is very useful.

If you are unsure what your requirements are Monks Building sServices are happy to advise you. We can give you advice on costings and to some extent help with an informal design. Sometimes even the choice of the right Architect can be difficult, experience is the key.
