Working with an architect

Architects are highly skilled and professionally trained to turn your aspirations into reality



Architects apply impartial and creative thinking to projects large and small, whether you are constructing, adapting or expanding a building.

An architect works with you to find the best design solution

Adding value

The insight and creative skills of an architect can deliver value well in excess of the fees they charge. An architect will help you achieve your aspirations and guide you through the design and construction process. They will handle the paperwork and bring value for money, peace of mind and imagination to your project, while keeping it on track. 

Lead  consultants

Architects are trained to understand a client’s needs and support strategic decision making. From site selection to post-completion, your architect can lead the team of specialist consultants: engineers, cost consultants, landscape and interior designers, to achieve your vision and complete the project effectively and efficiently.

Representing your interests

If you need additional help and support, we can put you in touch with an accredited RIBA Client Adviser, an experienced architect who can help at all stages of the project. For example, they can help you define and prepare the brief, set up and lead the project team, draw up the business case, and manage the procurement on your behalf. A RIBA Client Adviser can also represent your interests within an integrated design-build team.

An architect may well be the best investment you ever make.
