5 Top Tips To Get Your Project Off To A Flying Start...


In this video Kenneth shares his five top tips that you should consider when looking for an architect in Glasgow, Edinburgh or indeed anywhere!



1.    Approach An Architect – if you are considering an alteration to your home or self building a new home,  you are potentially about to borrow a substantial amount of money from your bank over perhaps the course of 20-25 years. Architect and design professional’s fees should also be considered over this period of time and off set against the value you will be adding to your property. At Block Architects we offer an initial FREE consultation service during which we will help you to understand the design and planning processes, how we will help you achieve your dream and through our professional approach show you why Block Architects are the architects to fulfil your vision.

2.    Choose An Architect With A Good Customer Service Record - a truely professional service will recognise the need for good customer communication ensuring that you the client and the design team you are working with maintain open channels of communication at all times. At Block Architects we have a communications policy that sets us apart from our competitors. Where you use Block Architects Hamilton, Glasgow or Edinburgh we will email, phone and write to you keeping you fully informed through the process of delivering your vision.

3.    Choose The Right Architect For Your Project - when starting any project it is not simply a case of asking an architect to produce a set of drawings. The construction and delivery process is a complex one involving quite a bit of red tape in the current climate and the planning  requirements are different for different sizes of project. At Block Architects we specialise in small to medium sized projects from simple garage conversions through to £1 - £2 million developments.  We fully understand the finer points of the planning processes that are involved in these smaller projects. So if you are planning a larger scale development go with a large architectural firm, if it’s a small to medium sized project Block Architects can deliver you vision!

4.    Choose An Architect With Contacts - it is important that the architect you choose for your project has worked for several years in a geographical location and that they have built up contacts within the local planning office and building control authorities. Having an architect who has built up a good rapport with other professionals in the area will assist with the delivery of your project through local planning and building control. Block Architects has worked in the Central Belt of Scotland since 2004 . We have an in depth knowledge of the planning processes and have built relationships with the people involved in planning throughout this area.

5.    Case Studies And Client Testimonials - any architect you consider should be willing and able to provide you with cases studies of previous projects and customer testimonials from satisfied clients. Block Architects are renown for their excellent customer service, keeping the client fully informed at all times and delivering projects on time and on budget. Read our clients testimonials below.
