Builder or Architect?
So you’ve made the decision to refurbish, rebuild or build a new destination. You have a pretty good idea what you want to achieve, how you want it to look and how successful you hope it to be. But where do you start? Do you really need an architect. After all, that’s just another expense, right? Wrong.
All to often, we are called in to fix up major issues in projects that have gone off track due to poor planning and foresight. Don’t get us wrong. Builders are great. They’ve particularly good at building. We’re architects. We’re particularly good at considering how a building or space needs to work from a structural sense, but also from the perspective of those who will actually be engaging with the space longer term. We take into account the needs of the end customer, but also the staff and stakeholders working in and around the space.
In addition, builders make money by building quickly and efficiently. They often achieve this by applying generic solutions – a one size fits all approach.
Using an architect is an investment into the success of your destination.
By engaging the expertise of an architect, you reduce your exposure to errors and expedite council permission via thorough submissions. While your architect is navigating through a swathe of technical and regulatory considerations, you remain free to work on your business and plan for a successful future.
