Featured Reviews for Architects and Building Designers in Bilston, West Midlands
Ben Parsons Design Limited
Architects and Building Designers in Bilston, West Midlands
"Ben delivered an exceptional kitchen and living extension for us and we would highly recommend him. His design whilst unique and contemporary also took into account our existing house style and he managed to marry the two together nicely. His style was excellent as he pushed the boundaries with the design but also took into account all of our needs and the practicalities required in a family home. We also asked Ben to project manage the building for us and this took the stress out of the job and made sure that we got an exceptional end result. He has a warm and engaging style and we would definitely work with him again."
- Mark Sergeant
Architects and Building Designers in Bilston, West Midlands
"My project was a dining room extension to a 3 bedroom bungalow. This is my first time using an architect and Glyn was fantastic. Took on board what I was after and suggested improvements where necessary. He went to a lot of trouble to find a first class builder for me who did the work in quick time and high quality and with only occasional input from me as the property was empty during the works."

"We used Volker for an extensive redesign of our house in 2015. He provided a truly creative design that was both different and pragmatic. He took the time to understand our needs and when coupled with his imaginative viewpoint and high design standards resulted in a look and layout that we were delighted with. Overall we were very pleased with how he managed the project, he was excellent at following through with commitments, strong on feedback and great at patiently working through the many iterations of designs that we went through over the months."
- Farrell Dolan

Studio Severn Architects
Architects and Building Designers in Bilston, West Midlands
"I would highly recommend Studio Severn Architects. Julie's skill and expertise is second to none and her understanding of our brief was perfect. The technical drawings she provided were excellent and our builders praised the level of detail they were given. Not only is her standard of work excellent but Julie is also very easy to get along with, she took the time to get to know us and was very helpful through the whole process. Our extension was completed in 2016 and we are so pleased with the result - an amazing light and airy family living space."
- Hannah Ferrier
etc Design Ltd
Architects and Building Designers in Bilston, West Midlands
"Employed the services of E.T.C Design Ltd , initially for a new build project but eventually went with a complete refurbishment and extension project in excess £250,000. The architects grasped our brief and interpretation from the very beginning.The brief also included an array of "special needs adaptations" for our daughter. Fantastic level of professionalism and considerate enough to explain in "layman terms" every step of the process from start to finished build.Thanks again to all the team at E.T.C Design Ltd and giving us such a wonderful house and home!"
- Geoff smith
Fleming James Architects
Architects and Building Designers in Bilston, West Midlands
"The architects were both very enthusiastic and professional in their work and the attention to detail was fantastic. Our builder commented that the plans were the most detailed he had seen on a residential build which resulted in the build running smoothly and keeping within budget and time-scale. Every space was well thought out to meet our requirements and the end result and quality has far exceeded our expectations. We have an amazing living space which we would not have achieved without the input of an experienced architect. We would highly recommend them."

How do I choose the right Bilston, West Midlands architect?

Begin by determining the type of architectural service you require. Is it merely advice that you need? Or a detailed set of architectural design plans? Are you hoping to add a single-storey extension or are you really looking for someone to design you a custom home and handle construction management right through to completion? One of the most important duties of full service architects in Bilston, West Midlands is to serve as project managers and supervise most aspects of construction as well as facilitate communication between all other contractors.

Architecture is an incredibly technical profession and one where getting things wrong can literally put lives at risk, so do background checks on your Bilston architect. Check they are registered with architecture associations such as the Architect’s Registration Board (ARB) and The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA). Being part of an architecture association means that an architect or architecture firm has met certain standards, qualifications and practices, and can be held accountable if they don’t meet these standards. It’s advisable to choose architects that specialise in the kind of project that you are undertaking as their existing experience will shine through in the completed design. Look for an architect in Bilston, West Midlands that can provide references and reviews of their previous work.

Once you have determined the service level you need, your next consideration will be architectural style. Some architects specialise in designing for traditional housing such as period cottages and country homes, or even in designing modern replicas in a period style. Others have a knack for imagining bolder, more futuristic architectural design in Bilston, West Midlands incorporating the latest green technology. Check their Houzz profile and website for examples of previous work. Early on, try to gauge availability – there’s no point in choosing an architect that’s going to be booked for months if you have a tight deadline. Some architects are happy to do all their work online or over the phone with you, but if you’d prefer to work with an architect in person then check that your chosen architects in Bilston, West Midlands will travel to you.

What is the process to hire an architect?

At the first meeting, preferably at your property or building site, give as clear a picture as possible of the kind of home you are trying to create to your architects. Chat through your goals, projected budget, scope of work, schedule and feedback, together with any very specific requirements you might have. It is crucial that your architects are clear about their responsibilities and that these are documented in the contract. Ask them to walk you through the process, including the number of architectural design consultations, site visits and what they will be delivering and when, e.g. feasibility study, a technical drawing, tender package and/or planning application drawings. They could illustrate this using a previous client’s project. Also, what does the architect need from you? Deeds, rights of way, deposit, staged payments etc. Once you have covered all this detail, you are ready to make your choice and get started. The architecture company in Bilston, West Midlands that you hire will likely start with concept drawings and finish with construction drawings and documents. Some firms even design with 3D renderings, CAD and videos, but this is by no means essential.

What makes a good architect?

You are looking for architects in Bilston, West Midlands that have the right balance of creative flair, technical nous, practicality and impeccable service to see you through. Get a sense of whether they are a good listener, collaborator and problem solver. Checking their references will also be invaluable at this stage so look at their Houzz profile for past customer reviews. Ask to speak to previous clients, particularly regarding their responsiveness and ability to work creatively around a budget.

How much does hiring an architect cost?

There is no set payment structure for an architect. Some Bilston, West Midlands architects will charge an hourly rate, others base their fees on a percentage of the total construction cost or propose a fixed fee (payable in instalments) for projects such as house extensions or a complete home design. You may wish to pay in stages to safeguard against any possible dissatisfaction with the quality of service. Make sure the total figure and payment schedule is agreed as part of your contract, particularly if you are trying to accurately estimate the cost of building a house.
