Why should you hire an architect for your shop extension?

So, what are the advantages of working with a professional architect team, to plan and design your new shop extension? Well, there are many, including:

  • Keeping within legal regulations and requirements- by working with a professional architect you can make sure your design plans meet the whole range of building and legal requirements, as well as any council requirements and permissions.
  • Stay on budget- using architectural designs to create plans for all construction teams means that everyone can be on the same page, to get to the desired end result. This can help to reduce any confusion or issues, as well as to avoid any design flaws or problems that occur during the process.
  • Designed around your requirements- a professional architect team will listen to your requirements, and create plans that are designed to meet these. This means you will end up with a property that is visually attractive, and practical. A win/win for any extension project.
  • Tackle any problems before they arise- an architect, during the design and planing process, can find and avoid any potential problems. This means that you wont be half way through construction and hit a water pipe, or something equally as disastrous!
