What can I expect from the consultation?

At your consultation,  the architect can advise on any size of building project from a loft conversion to a new build (domestic, commercial or civic). Some things you might discuss:

  • Information on building costs or construction techniques
  • Discussion on building materials likely to be used
  • Planning requirements or Planning Exempt Development.
  • The documents that will be used for planning; tenders; and building contracts
  • The potential pitfalls or opportunities that comes with a building project
  • Guidance on architect’s fees and services

Architect Aisling Shannon Rusk wrote a blog post for us, explaining the kinds of things she discusses in consultations with clients.
