Now the first one, empathy, is obviously the most important because it’s absolutely crucial that your architect has an intuitive sense of what your vision is for your home. Not, by the way, their vision or what they think your vision should be, but your vision. That’s the only thing that counts.
And of course at the beginning of a relationship this is the most difficult thing for you to assess because everyone looks good at the beginning.
They are charming and they’re going to put their best foot forwards and you’re only going to find out whether they were the right person or not at the end or perhaps when you´ve spent some money and spent some time and it’s all looking costly to change routes.
So what I would say to you is ask to see our written testimonials from people who’ve been with us from the beginning all the way through to the end and who have written to us to say thank you. And by the way you can ring those people up and talk to them. They’re absolutely fine with that.
The second thing: price. Architects can charge whatever they like, although there are recommended fees by the College of architects. So we’ve got celebrity architects who charge a lot and who are doubtless very good. We do the same thing. We charge standard prices but we are also excellent and can do exactly what those celebrity architects do.
And of course if you want cheap and cheerful, I wouldn’t recommend it, but you’ll find it available.
The third thing: their experience. Obviously it’s important that your architect has direct experience of the kind home that you want to build so again asked to see examples of the homes that we have built.
We can send you photographs, costs, videos. We don’t put them on the website to protect the privacy of our clients but for qualified prospective clients we can show you our work.
