3 Qualities to Consider When Hiring an Architect, Rochester, New York

If you’re constructing a commercial building, you have a lot of decisions to make. One of these is selecting the right architect to work with. The professional you choose plays a huge role in how your building will function and look, so it’s important to select one who meets all the necessary requirements. Here are three considerations to take into account.

3 Tips for Hiring a Commercial Architect

1. Look at Previous Projects

Reading customer reviews and looking at pictures of previous projects will tell you a lot about the architect you’re thinking about working with in terms of style and how well liked they are by their other clients.

2. Talk Budget

architectOne of the most important factors to consider before hiring an architect is your budget. Ultimately, it will give you major guidelines as to who you can and cannot hire. When discussing your budget with an architect, ask about the up-front costs and any additional fees. If you don’t go over all the details before signing, you could end up paying more than you anticipated to finish the project

3. Ask About Building Departments

Hiring an architect who can get a project through the building department with only one or no revisions is important when you want to finish on time. Each round of revisions that is not passed through the building department requires re-drawings, revisions, resubmissions, and reviews that take precious time, so it’s crucial you hire a professional who is skilled with this portion of the design process.
