46552a7e-6e8c-4844-fb98-5ea8f802fa2aThe overall success of your project hinges heavily on many deciding factors. Planning, design scheme, if it is a brand new building, or your are working with an existing structure are just a few of the issues you will need to discuss. So which architectural design service you choose can make all the difference.

So whether it's a new custom home, a renovation or an addition, here are 3 tips on choosing the right architectural design service for the job.

Research

Just as you did for your new project, doing proper research when you are trying to find a skilled and experienced architectural designer is key to its success. Look them up on the Internet, call to speak to them in person, meet them at their office, view other projects they've completed, and ask for testimonials, request copies of their previous work, and so on. The more you know, the less stress you'll have in the future.

Estimates

Talking about price for many people is difficult, and staying within a budget may be non-negotiable for some owner's. For this reason, always get detailed, written estimates of price, which contains specifics and details itemizing the project down to every cent you plan to spend. Look for a "cost objective" at the very start of the project, even if you are planning a brand new home. This way, when it comes time to make the choice, you can use each quoted price as a means to decide.

Top-Notch Service

Prices can be a huge factor for what choice you make. But sometimes this isn't always for the best. While a lower price may seem attractive at the beginning, what's more important in a lot of instances is capability, skill level, and the service being offered. For this reason, deciding on an architectural design service for your project should also include that the services being offered exceed your expectations, not just meet them.
