    For a project, at what point is it generally best to get an architect involved? Is there a rule of thumb to consider, such as ‘once the basics are considered’ or if I’ve hired the team that will bring a project to life? Or at another phase?

    How can I make sure that an architect will complete a project within a set budget? How do I avoid common misunderstandings or/and ensure that the project goes as smoothly as possible?

    Asked by Julie on 1st Nov 2021

    I have a nearly square area of 5 x 5 metres right up to the boundary fences, which I am thinking of building living space, for use as office space and / or temporary living accommodation. I liken it to a studio apartment with kitchen, bathing, living, sleeping areas. What would be the best way to start exploring this project. Would I need planning, architectural services? Any idea of pricing? Sorry for seeming so vague, but any advise would be appreciated at this stage.

    Asked by Raymond on 27th Sep 2020

    Hi all, How do I go about starting the planning process for a single storey extension on my home? I want to have a small extension built to the side of the existing building, to be used an additional utility room. Shall I get quotes before having plans made or have the plans made first? Are architects able to advise me on the plans themselves? And what would be an approximate cost for an architect to produce the plans for the extension? Will I need planning permission for this extension? It will be entirely within my property boundaries. Additionally, please let me know if you have any ideas of how long this could take, how long to have quotes/plans made or any other advice for building an extension like this.
