An architect is a professional and a good architect will make sure that the work is done in a professional way by designing to your specifications, managing the whole works and keeping to your budget.
Yes, I offer both residential and commercial architectural services.
My experience is mainly in residential and public architecture (wineries, university buildings) but I am able to do any type of residential, commercial or industrial project.
Standard architectural fees are based on the total project construction cost. There is a sliding scale published by the South African Council for the Architectural Profession (SACAP). I offer a discount for each stage of service, please chat to me and we can talk about what your project needs.
Yes, my initial site visit is free.
If I am appointed for stages 5 and 6 (during construction) then again, depending on the project, site visits may be weekly or every two weeks.
Yes, as a professional architect I can manage the project from start to finish.
It depends entirely on the project: for a renovation you may only need an architect and a builder, for a larger house you will also need a structural engineer and it would be good to include a quantity surveyor. For very big projects you would need an entire professional team including mechanical and electrical engineers.
Yes, employing a good architect will save you money. I will design to your budget and if appointed during the construction phase of the project will manage the construction budget.
