Choosing an architect is not something you do lightly, so you want to make sure you’re fully informed and in a good position to make a decision. You’ll be putting your home in their hands, so you need to be able to trust them.
Make sure you consider that architects specialise in different types of buildings, so ensure that you use an architect that suits the style of your project. It’s also absolutely vital that you check that the architect is on the Architect’s Registration Board (ARB), which they are legally required to be registered with.
