10 Key Considerations When Choosing An Architecture Firm In Wandsworth
Choosing an architecture firm for your home improvement project is never an easy task.
There’s plenty of choice, the difficult bit is selecting a Wandsworth architect that:
1) Is creative enough to put forward inspirational home design ideas that you wouldn’t have thought of yourself
2) At the same time is consultative enough to listen carefully to what you want, and then creating an extension or home refurbishment that caters for these requirements
3) Has experiences in working with the Wandsworth.gov.uk council to obtain planning permission for the home of your dreams – or even find a way to extend your home without needing planning permission at all
4) Follows the RIBA Architect stages for your assurance that every aspect is carefully considered in a structured manner
5) Monitors the project tenaciously, keeping tabs on contractors, build costs, and timescales, so that you don’t have to.
6) Designs your home with energy-efficiency and sustainability in mind
7) Utilises natural light as an unbeatable way to create airiness and a sense of well-being within your home
8) Has a fixed fee structure, because percentage-based fees can motivate architects to include costly and unnecessary architectural features, simply to inflate the project value (and their associated fees)
9) Is based in or nearby Wandsworth, allowing you to meet with the architects and designers face to face initially, and allowing regular site visits to monitor your project as it progresses.
10) Has plenty of good reviews, giving you some honest 3rd party feedback on their architect services in Wandsworth
