WHY PEOPLE ARE HIRING ARCHITECTS MORE THAN EVER NOW.
For a while, the profession of architecture seemed quite dead for the past 5 years or so, But lately, the trend amongst Real estate developers and homeowners is sharply trending more towards well-versed architects instead of other unqualified sources.
Especially when you consider metropolitan cities, and frankly as we develop so do the need for modern/ Contemporary Architecture. Society now needs artistic designers more than ever instead of those who design, Just for the sake of design.
So what's the reason for such a sharp trend?
1. UNDERSTANDING AND RESPECTING A THOUGHTFUL DESIGN
Well for starters the fact that people are understanding the fact that Architects are professionals trained in design theory, engineering, and project management, while design-builders sometimes do not have academic training in those fields. What design-build firms do bring to the table is their extensive and valuable experience in the area you are building, as well as their familiarity with state and local regulations, permits, fees and more.
2. REVISION TO BYLAWS TO MATCH MODERN WORLD PARAMETERS
Building codes can throw even the most experienced builders and property owners into a loop. Hiring an architect is a great way to navigate those tricky waters and make sure you do not run afoul of any local laws.
Architects have years of experience working with local governments and regulatory bodies to help their clients design the right property for the area. When you have an architect in your corner, you have an expert at your disposal, and that can make a huge difference.
3. THEY CAN MAKE A BUILDING THAT PAYS ITSELF OFF !
Green power is playing an increasingly important role, both in Australia and around the world. While solar and wind power were once far more costly than fossil fuels, the gap is quickly shrinking, and buildings that use sustainable sources of energy can be less expensive to run than their non-green counterparts.
A good architect will be able to advise you on the best green energy to use. The architect will be able to look at the proposed site and place the building with solar power in mind. They will be able to design a roof that can accommodate solar power or wind turbines, and they will be able to build those green energy technologies from the start.
The money you save on your monthly heating and cooling bills could be enough to pay for the cost of the architectural firm. More and more companies are going green, and they are finding that an architect can be a huge help.
No matter what kind of structure you are building, it is a good idea to hire an architect. Engaging the services of an architect early in the building process can save you money, reduce the hassle factor, and bring your project in on time and under budget.
