Hiring chartered architects to complete a building project is a far better decision than hiring a builder with ‘architectural designer’ capabilities. ‘Architectural designer’ capabilities do not equal a qualified architect. A qualified chartered architect will have seven years of training and qualifications behind them.
To achieve chartered architects status, each firm has to meet the Royal Institute of British Architects’ (RIBA) standards of practice. Highly regulated, every year each firm of chartered architects must be able to demonstrate that they are working with the following policies in mind: health and safety, environmental management, employment policy and continued professional development in all members of its workforce.
A chartered architect can tailor the project to suit your budget requirements. A professional architect will be able to offer cost effective solutions and creative solutions, proposing ways to reduce costs while taking into consideration environmental concerns, functionality, and the aesthetics of both the interior and exterior of the building.
