An Architects first priority is to ensure maximum return on your investments through good design by creating a timeless design that is:

WHICH ARCHITECT?

This is one of the most important questions.

You need to look for someone:

  • With experience to get it right the first time
  • With passion for your project
  • With skills to communicate using full 3D computer modelling
  • You like or you think gets you
  • Who will listens to you – even if they don’t agree
  • Who you will listen to – even if you don’t agree
  • With a track record preferably with his own business
  • Like me

 

IS AN ARCHITECT WORTH THE EXPENSE?

It is simply a matter of priorities.

Would you prefer to spend your hard earned money on:

  • the pointy end of a plane for a better life when you are in the air
  • a new car every 2 years for a better when you are on the road
  • a well designed building for a better life every day for ever
