Why use an Architect?

Creating a building can be a complex process that an architect is trained and experienced to guide you through. There are many compelling reasons to use an architect; the following are but a few:

  • Whether it is an office, school or house, a building project is usually a major investment - it makes sense to obtain the best advice from an experienced professional Architect to ensure that your building is well conceived, designed and built to ensure that your investment is well made. 

  • Most clients have everyday commitments that make it hard to devote the time required to adequately manage the building process - an Architect can assist you from the site selection and initial design stage right through to completion of construction

  • We can help you build your dreams and ensure that your project is responsive to your needs and desires, also to it's context and unique environmental circumstance.

  • Types of construction, available materials and choices of fixtures and fittings  - an Architect can advise and help take the guesswork out of building

  • Your project may involve specialist input from other professionals - an architect can identify and manage other consultants for you.

  • An architect can assist by managing the permit processes - heritage, planning, building and plumbing permits are required for a large percentage of projects in Hobart and throughout Tasmania

  • During construction well managed contract administration is very important for both parties to the contract. Architects are familiar with building contracts and are trained to administer them with impartiality ensuring fair processes are followed.
