Julie Richards Architectural Design Ltd.
Architects and Building Designers in Mountsorrel, Leicestershire
"I appointed Julie Richards in January 2016 to carry out a complete refurbishment of the two bedroom 'Warner' style maisonette I own and rent out in Leyton, London. It was agreed the works should be completed by April at the latest, and this was achieved. The property had fallen into considerable disrepair during a lengthy tenancy of almost a decade, only fetching a low rent that reflected this state of affairs. In January 2016 the existing tenant moved out and I took this opportunity to bring the place into line with average rental prices for the area, which valuations indicated had risen a great deal since my original investment. Within a strict budget of 25k Julie's brief was, therefore, to strip the place out entirely and build it back up to a standard that would guarantee the financial return necessary to recoup the expense, whilst providing enduring value going forward. It was a given that the kitchen and bathroom would have to be completely replaced. Julie's choices were tasteful, economical and above all - with limited space - practical. All the existing decor had become too tired to be restored effectively, so Julie also designed and oversaw a complete redecoration. Of course scratching the surface brought ever greater issues: large areas of plastering coming away, and the apparent obsolescence of the electrical circuitry and aspects of the plumbing amongst them. She coped admirably with all of these things as they arose. She also showed an appreciative touch with some of the more 'period' features such as sash windows, sliding doors and wooden floorboards stripped, sanded and varnished to remarkable effect. (We never did get round to rehabilitating the bricked in hearth due to the narrow budgetary restraints, but the will was there!) The lighting design was also improved, adding to the overall feeling that my property had been transformed beyond recognition. Julie managed to incorporate these things into her scheme of work without - as I greatly feared - allowing timescale and budget to spiral out of control. She negotiated with a wide range of tradespeople directly herself, many of whom were her existing contacts. This was all a great relief to myself, having never embarked on a project of this scale before. I hope this helps, please don't hesitate to contact me if you wish to discuss anything further."

"Excellent professional service and beautiful plans created by Karl for a bungalow conversion into a house. Karl has great vision and has worked with me every step of the way to create exactly what I need from a home and gave great thought and attention to detail. Every question answered as I was new to all of the requirements needed for my renovation plans. Thanks to Karl's friendly and knowledgeable service, everything has run very smoothly, even the planning application stage through the Lake District Planning Board. Works are due to start soon and Karl has made sure everything needed is in place. I would highly recommend Karl Fox for any architectural needs."

sAs Architectural Design Services
Architects and Building Designers in Mountsorrel, Leicestershire
"Steve delivered a terrific project for us. Initially I thought Steve had totally misunderstood our brief and wondered if we would be able to achieve our vision of our completed property. However, after some fairly frank discussions during which Steve patiently explained that it was not at all unusual for the client to disagree with the proposal, we worked together to produce what I can only describe as our 'dream home'. In addition Steve was able to recommend a truly superb building contractor. We are only too happy to recommend his services. Martin & Sue Hughes"

How do I choose the right Mountsorrel, Leicestershire 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 Mountsorrel, Leicestershire 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 Mountsorrel 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 Mountsorrel, Leicestershire 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 Mountsorrel, Leicestershire 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 Mountsorrel, Leicestershire 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 Mountsorrel, Leicestershire 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 Mountsorrel, Leicestershire 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 Mountsorrel, Leicestershire 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.
