Hire an Architect – Save your Money!!

You can use an eraser on the drafting table or a sledge hammer on the construction site. – Frank Lloyd Wright

This article just goes about explaining what the famous architect Frank Lloyd Wright once said. So, before you jump the gun and hire your contracting crew, consider the benefits of architectural input. Architects plan and design buildings, remodels, and major renovations. If you’re thinking it’s just more money spent, it might be the opposite. You could save a bundle with their building code and structural requirement knowledge, as well as ensuring your vision comes properly to life.

Whether you are about the renovate existing home, adding some floors to it or going for whole new construction of your dream home, your building project represents a major investment of your life’s savings. Smart decision-makers know that the way to maximize such an investment begins with consulting an architect. Architects are the only professionals who have the education, training, experience and vision to maximize your construction spending and ease the entire design and construction process.

Early involvement is key. Architects, with an early involvement, can provide meaningful guidance for design. They can conduct site studies, provide secure planning and structural drawings taking care of all compliances and approvals, and perform a variety of other pre-design tasks. Plus, when architects are involved at the earliest planning stage, they gain more opportunities to understand your requirements, develop creative solutions, and propose ways to reduce costs. The long-term result is a house that adds to the productivity, efficiency, and effectiveness needed to make it home.

Why a BuildingeKart architect?

BuildingeKart ensures to enrol only those architects who remain current with professional standards through continuing education and subscribe to a Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct that assure clients, the public, and colleagues of their dedication to high standards in professional practice.

BuildingeKart architects can help you:

Clarify and design as per your needs - BuildingeKart architects can fully examine your requirements, budget, and building site to help define the scope of what’s to be built. The design process is a theoretical exercise to determine the most functional and aesthetic solution for a client within a given program and budget. Essentially it is the paper version of what will become your home. As you can imagine, it’s much cheaper to make changes on paper than it is to make changes during construction.

Professional Advice - There is no way for me, or anyone, to adequately quantify the value of professional advice that is born out of solid experience and knowledge from the earliest stages of design through to construction. Simply put very few clients are knowledgeable enough about design, ergonomics, and history and engineering to be able to do the job that your architect does every day. Having access to that professional advice through all stages of your project is invaluable, because, a well-designed building that is properly detailed is a more sound investment for years to come.

Experienced Oversight - They say that a great set of drawings is only as good as the contractor organizing the process of construction. Before I go further, let me state that there are a lot of very good contractors out there, but contractors are just one part of a team that should include your architect. Architects take the responsibility to assist the contractor during construction to interpret and translate the construction documents into built form. By retaining your architect during construction you will have the benefit of sound design, good details, and professional advice and avoid any oversight of your project, because, again, this is the largest investment you’re likely to make in your lifetime.

Manage your project - From the first draft plan to the last interior design implementation, BuildingeKart architects act as project leaders. They manage and coordinate key project elements, allowing you to sit in peace during entire home construction process.

Maximize your investment - BuildingeKart architects are up to date with latest construction technology trends and design building as per the latest trend. They also guide you on the right materials choice for your needs. A building designed for maximum energy efficiency can reduce bills now and down the road. Plus, efficient use of space can reduce the total square footage you require. And a well-designed building can reduce initial costs and also increase its long-term value.

See the big picture - BuildingeKart architects don’t just design four walls and a roof—they create total environments, both interior and exterior, that are pleasing and functional for the people to settle and make it abode.

Solve problems - Most projects start with a want or a need. “I need morespace in my home.” Or, “We’ve outgrown our house.” But how does that need or want get translated into square feet and three-dimensional space?

That is what architects are trained to do solve problems in creative ways. With their broad knowledge of design and construction, architects can show you alternatives and options you might never think of on your own.

Need more room for your growing family? An architect can show you how to enlarge your home so you don’t have to move. Not sure how fast your business is going to grow? An architect can design an office that meets your needs today and can be adapted for tomorrow. Have a limited budget? The architect looks for ways to make your project cost effective.

The architect can save you money - The architect’s services are a wise investment for the money, not an added cost to your project. Why?

Because a well-conceived project can be built more efficiently and economically.

Architects plan your projects with you. As your ideas evolve, changes can be made on paper much less expensively than later on when construction is underway. Thorough drawings also make it easier for the contractor to accurately price and build your project.

Because energy efficient buildings can save you money on fuel bills down the road.

An architect can design a building to maximize heating from the sun and let in natural light, thus reducing your heating, cooling and electric bills over time.

Because the architect can work with your budget and help you select the appropriate materials and workmanship at a fair price.

Because an architect can help you choose materials and finishes that are durable as well as beautiful, saving on frequent maintenance and replacement costs.

Architects work to stay abreast of advances in roofing, brick work, floor tiling, paint finishes, etc. Their familiarity with the full range of materials enables them to suggest the appropriate materials for your project.

Because good design sells. A well-designed house has a higher resale value. A well-designed work environment attracts employees and increases productivity.

The process of designing and building a structure is messy and complicated and requires a number of knowledgeable professionals to make sure things are done properly and according to the standards set forth by the architect. A home is also an incredibly personal building type and should be designed by someone who will take the time to really dig into your needs, wants and desires to create a home that truly meets the needs of you and your family. The small investment you make in your architect will more than pay for itself in the end.

If your project requires engineering or other design services, BuildingeKart architects coordinate with this team of experts so you don’t have to. BuildingeKart can help you find qualified construction contractors based on your requirements. BuildingeKart architect visits the construction site to help verify that the project is being built according to plans and specifications.
