Whether you are building a new home or renovating an existing one, an architect will be a key player throughout your project. If you want to be prepared and get the most out of your first meeting with an architect, having a list of questions ready to ask will ensure the process of choosing an architect is a smooth one.

From checking their credentials, managing timeline expectations, asking for clarification about their fees and how often they will update you on the progress of your project to understanding what information they need from you before they start work and, crucially, assessing whether you’re going to be a good fit, being prepared for your initial consultation and asking the right questions will help turn your dream home into a stress-free reality.
