Featured Reviews for Architects and Building Designers in Teddington, Gloucestershire
Design Storey
Architects and Building Designers in Teddington, Gloucestershire
"Design Storey are working with us to design and plan two extensions to our cottage. We were very impressed with the suggested options as there were solutions we had not considered which worked much better for our setting than our original ideas. Lydia has been very helpful and professional throughout, and has gone out of her way to help move our planning application forward. At every stage Design Storey have been professional and thorough, and have not minded our barrage of questions! We would not hesitate to recommend them."

Osbornes Architects

"Ian and the team at Osbournes designed and project managed our house build from demolition to rebuild. Their passion for architecture and attention to detail could be seen throughout the project. They have delivered us the most beautiful home, on time. They took away all the stress of building a home. They have responded to our needs throughout the project and the after care has also been exceptional. We can not recommend Osbournes highly enough."

Millar Howard Workshop
Architects and Building Designers in Teddington, Gloucestershire
"Millar Howard were our architects on our project to build what we have called 'The Gillyflower'; a rammed earth sound proofed and very beautiful, sustainable wedding and events venue. From the very early stages of this project (before we even knew what the business was going to be).. MHW worked with us on feasibility, planning, creative ideas, design and administrated the contract with our excellent builders, JR Building LTD. We couldn't be more happy with the level of service we got and they often went beyond the limits of our brief to ensure that we ended up with what is now a very popular, impressive and stunning building perfectly sitting in the landscape.

Freeman Architecture Ltd
Architects and Building Designers in Teddington, Gloucestershire
"Full set of drawings for single floor extension to rear of the house. Drawings were completed to an agreed time frame and amended at my request without delay. A full brief was carried out before drawing work started with Matt explaining what may be best for such an extension. The only amendments i needed to make was the roof covering as the zinc proposed (my choice) worked out very expensive so asked for an alternative and again was given advise without any hassle. Overall a very good service and would recommend to anybody in the future."

How do I choose the right Teddington, Gloucestershire 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 Teddington, Gloucestershire 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 Teddington 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 Teddington, Gloucestershire 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 Teddington, Gloucestershire 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 Teddington, Gloucestershire 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 Teddington, Gloucestershire 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 Teddington, Gloucestershire 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 Teddington, Gloucestershire 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.

What are the important questions to ask architects in Teddington, Gloucestershire?


  • How long have you been an architect in Teddington, Gloucestershire? Are you part of ARB and RIBA? Are you part of any other associations of architectural design in Teddington, Gloucestershire?
  • How would you improve my current property and what do you think is the best use of my available budget?
