Why Use an Architect?

What to look for in an architect

When you employ an Architect, you are paying for their knowledge, skill and experience – not just a set of drawings.

Choosing a Chartered Architect will give you peace of mind. They comply with strict criteria covering insurance, health and safety and quality management systems.

“The title ‘architect’ is protected. It can only be used in business or practice by people who have had the education, training and experience needed to become an architect.” – ARB

There are also other, perhaps less obvious reasons to hire an architect as we will enhance your project and help tackle challenges. As architects we are trained to look at the property overall and how it works. We prefer to assess a building as a whole to ensure your investment is spent in the best possible way, and achieves maximum impact.

At Muir Walker pride we offer one-off consultations and these can be incredibly useful.

“Appointing an architect from an early stage is central to optimising the asset and creating value. They apply impartial and creative thinking whether you are planning a new build, or adapting or expanding an existing property.”- RIBA working with and Architect for your development
