“The value of architects as project managers in residential construction is not as clearly understood as it could be” says Andrew Heaton in a recent online news article.
The article notes a recent study undertaken by Cameron Frazer indicating that there is an ‘information gap’ exists between consumers who want new or renovated homes which meet lifestyle preferences and architects who have the capacity to act as a delivery mechanism for good quality design outcomes.
The words “architect designed” are often used to imply luxury and high-end design. But in reality, architects can guide clients through the building process and act as a ‘trusted advisor’ with regard to things like building approvals, contracts administration and unexpected problems which surface during construction.
Geolyse appreciates and understands the value of utilising architects throughout the planning process. Our architects are supported by our team of engineers, surveyors, town planners and environmental professionals to ensure all aspects of a development can be considered at an early stage. This can add significantly to the return on investment for the development by achieving the best design for the available money, helping avoid costly mistakes and ensure seamless planning approvals process with local authorities.
