The architect is a professional who has the education, training, experience and imagination necessary to guide you through the entire process of design and construction , from work to help you define what you need to build up the way to get the most for your investment .

Driving contractors and suppliers, architects may make the process culminating in a well-constructed project, you meet your expectations and framing within the cost and time you’ve planned.

Choosing an architect ?
1. Deciding which will make the project architect of your home, the first question to known or internet research on the experience that people have with this aquitecto or architectural firm . If you see a house you like, ask the owners who made the project. If you have no idea architects go to school in your province and ask for a list of architects in your area, or look at this blog list Architect country so you can contact them.
Two. Remember that cheap is expensive and no one gives their work. So you can ask the architectural firms or independent architects to create convenient, how much they charge per m2 of work to carry you the plans or if you want to do all the construction project with them.
Three. Asked least 3 architects and compare what they offer and how they charge. Cheapest does not have to be the winner, because you have to consider the quality of the work you’ve previously investigated.
April. Sees where the architect distribution ideas you can find in this blog planes , with a list of requirements such as number of bedrooms, bathrooms, how many plants, etc.. You can draw your own on paper what you want so that the architect can understand what you really want.
The charges an architect ?
Prices are free, each takes a different architect. The fees for services provided by the architect to be regarded as a sound investment and not as an additional cost to the project, among others, for the following reasons:
a. A well-conceived project can be built more efficiently and economically, avoiding or minimizing improvisations and unexpected surprises that cause additional costs and unnecessarily prolong the period of construction.
b. The architect produced plans and specifications by selecting materials and finishes, depending on their quality, beauty, durability and cost. These plans and specifications used to build not only the work, but are essential for serious and reliable proposals of contractors and suppliers.
c. Good design and good construction will always provide added value: higher property value to a property and in some cases more customers to a business or increased productivity in the workplace. The architect can provide things that you probably would not consider and implement other that you’d know not how to deal with, such as program steps, time warn potential problems associated with official regulations, coordinating the work of specialists in complex projects, recommending contractors and competent providers, subscribe to advise and equitable contracts for controls for construction is carried out in accordance with drawings , specifications, amounts and deadlines.
The architect can provide invaluable advice from the earliest stages of their performance. Many problems could be avoided if the architect was consulted, inclusive, before buying a plot , as it not only knows the restrictions that may apply to a particular field but is also able to find good opportunities in seemingly unsuitable terrain and difficulties which are not would occur in other customer that it would seem appropriate. The success or failure of a housing project depends largely on the relationship between architect and developer.
The architect has to know your customer love and try to find the appropriate sensitivity to be able to create an efficient home, with little cost and consumption level that meets the real needs of the people, not what may happen. The architect has to learn to be more outgoing, to learn how to break the ice with the customer quickly and learn how to gain the confidence thereof.
