When choosing your residential architect who will be responsible for your home in Jupiter, you need to be sure to know who to trust. It is a great task to entrust to any person and is possibly one of the most personal things you can trust anyone else with. Your residential architect will be the person responsible for the construction of your home, making this a slightly more valuable job than usual. It is therefore crucial you choose the right architect for you, so here are some pointers to follow.
Use the web, but use it wisely
The internet can either be your friend, or your arch nemesis when searching for reputable people. Firstly, it is easy for people to create websites. Now while this means any old person can get themselves onto Google, it says more about the architects that do not bother to do so at all. When viewing your potential candidate's website, be sure to take a look at their portfolio of past work which they have done. This should give you an indication as to the magnitude of jobs which they have been involved with in the past and give you somewhat of an indication to their credibility.
Be sure you know what you are looking for
There is a broad spectrum of diversity between residential and commercial architects. Therefore make sure that from the get go you are enlisting the services of people who are dedicated to the focus of residential projects. Another powerful way to check your architect out is through word of mouth. People who have been in the game for over a decade generally have a good-standing reputation.
Take note of the qualifications
Do not, out of the goodness of your heart, be willing to invest your dream home into an underqualified candidate who has a ‘natural feel’ for the realm of architecture. Unfortunately in this industry, qualifications are vital as this stipulates your architect actually does know what they are speaking about. Be sure to look over these as well as their achievements – if any – before recruiting them.
