If you are planning to embark on a building project - whatever its size - then it makes sense to consult a professional. An architect will guide you through the building process, will share your concerns and will help you to translate your vision into reality. To any building project, no matter how small, he or she will bring three essential qualities: imagination, value for money and freedom from worry.

Removing the mystery
There is a misplaced sense of mystique about what architects do - a fear, even, that they will impose their own tastes at the expense of your own. Nothing could be further from the truth. Step by step, by consultation and agreement, your architect will lead you through the entire process from the first germ of an idea to the finished building.

How much does it cost?
You can select all or part of an architect's service. If you want only an hour's general advice then that is all you will pay for. If you need just the detailed drawings, or want the scheme to be guided to the planning permission stage and no further, then that is fine too. The BIA has standard appointment documents from which you can select the precise services you need.
