Three Ways An Architect Can Improve The Plans For Your Wellington Home

A professional architect can take your building ideas from dreams to reality by helping you with regulations and tricky areas

You may think you don't need an architect to help you with your Wellington building project especially if you are just doing renovations, but hiring someone qualified to draw up your plans can have benefits. So before you embark on your building project solo consider these ways in which an architect could help.

Planning tricky areas

Some rooms are simple, but others like bathrooms and kitchens can be harder to get right. These rooms need to be functional as well as stylish, and a good architect can combine these two aspects.

Often rooms like bathrooms are smaller and getting the layout right can be tricky so this is another area where a professional could help.

Knowing planning regulations

If you choose an architect who has spent some time in the area where you are building, they should have a good working knowledge of local planning regulations and any particular issues you might face.

This means you can start building knowing your plans are in order, and there should be no unwelcome visits from the council planning officer. It can also help you rethink your ideas in light of potential restrictions such as roof heights or boundary lines.

Dealing with difficult sites

If your site is tricky, then an architect may be able to create a design you had not thought of. With many plots in Wellington being on the hillside, it can take skill to make the most of the site for both the house and the garden.

An experienced architect, particularly one who has worked in Wellington and its surrounds will be able to skillfully plan your house and where it should be sited to maximise the living spaces.  They will also factor in things such as where the sun will hit the house.

Finding the right architect for you

Before you choose your architect, invite two or three to discuss the project and supply you with an estimate for the work.

Ask friends or family who have built which architect they used or ask for references from other happy customers. You may also be able to find other local properties designed by an architect you are considering which could help you decide if their style will suit you.

If you are planning on building in a particular style, for example, an eco-build or a character renovation, it could be better to seek an architect who has experience in the specific area as they may have more in-depth knowledge of any potential problems.

You should also find out how involved the architectural company will be as the build progresses. Will they only draw up initial plans or will they help you with any redesigns needed as the home is constructed? If you cannot be on site regularly, you may also need to find out if your architect is willing to liaise directly with a project manager or contractor should any questions arise.

Undertaking a new home build is a big task even if you have built or renovated previously so don’t feel bad about taking your time over choosing something important like an architect on Builderscrack. Making the right decision at the beginning will lessen regrets at the end.
