Each architect has an individual style, approach to design and a method of work. So, it’s important to find an architect who is compatible with your style and needs. Here are some questions to determine if your architect is right for you:
What does the architect see as important issues or considerations in your project? What are the challenges of the project?
How will they approach your project?
How busy is his/her schedule?
Who is your point-of-contact at the architecture firm? Is that the same person who will be designing the project?
How does the architect establish fees?
How much will your project cost?
What will you be expected to provide(if anything)?
What will the architect show you along the way to explain the project? Will you see models, drawings, or computer animations?
What services does the architect provide during construction?
