Sometimes, in collaboration with a quantity surveyor or project manager, we will assist in the drafting of an appropriate contract for the client and the contractor to sign.
The architect is then responsible for administering the contract, thereby ensuring that the building work is executed in accordance with the construction pack of documents.
Our role includes site visits, inspecting the works on site on a regular basis (usually fortnightly), checking and certifying payment valuations, instructing any variations to the contracted works and inspecting the completed work prior to practical completion.
We would happily recommend Barry (Architects Atelier) to friends and neighbours to provide the design ideas that help turn our vision in to reality. Barry made suggestions that we had not thought of that significantly improved the outcome of the Kitchen and Garden room extension to our house. A very easy to work with professional who knows his stuff.
