The Best Architects in Queens NY Are the Ones Proven Safe To Hire  


The state of New York requires architects in Queens NY to be licensed by the New York State Board for Architecture, which requires one of a varying minimum combination of education and prior experience.

But that is no guarantee that any particular architect in Queens NY is doing business ethically, delivering value, or satisfying their clients. Likewise, there is no legal requirement that architects in Queens show as a license requirement any proof of professional liability insurance to reimburse you for loss due to error or negligence.

This makes it all the more significant that all architects in Queens NY who bear The Prime Buyer's Report-TOP 10 symbol have been cleared by our research staff as passing all the requirements for Prime Buyer's Report-TOP 10 status such as survey phone calls to previous clients to verify high satisfaction, verified state license, good complaint record, verified liability insurance, sufficient time in business, best business practices, and more.

 

 

Questions to Ask Architects in Queens NY 



Step 1:
Describe Your Needs to the Architects
Explain to the architects your ideas for your building design as well as the purpose and how you will be using it. Be consistent in the way that you present the information so each of the architects are allowed to respond to the same information.

Step 2: Answer Questions of the Architects in Queens NY & Take Notes
So that they can better personalize your project for you, architects should have a long list of questions about the intended purposes of the structure, applicable working or living habits, accessibility preferences, and more. Part of an architect's job is to create the perfect blend of your needs, style preferences, and building code. This question and answer session will reveal the architects' ability to do so.

Step 3: Ask the Architects Questions & Take Notes

Ask these questions about their abilities, background, methods and expertise:


• How long have they been architects in Queens specifically? (Different regions have their own unique soil conditions, weather, sunlight exposure, etc that should effect design choices. The length of experience doing projects in your location specifically shows familiarity with these aspects.)

• How many projects have they done in your city specifically? (Different cities have different codes that must be met, and different processes for plan approval. Previous experience getting plans approved by your local city shows their familiarity with these aspects.)

• How many other projects have they done that are like yours? (Custom homes versus commercial, traditional versus modern architecture, green architecture, etc.)

• What is their educational background?


• Do they have a specialty that makes them especially unique or valuable?

• Can the architects give you names and numbers of clients that you can call as references? (All architects  bearing the Prime Buyer's Report-TOP 10 symbol have already had client references called  by our research staff so you don't have to.)

• How is their fee structured?

• How long would you have to wait long before they can complete your design plans?

• Do they carry professional liability insurance that can reimburse you in the event of an error? (All architects in Queens bearing the Prime Buyer's Report-TOP 10 symbol have already had proof of insurance verified by our research staff so you don't have to.)

• Who at their firm will actually be doing your design work? (The principal architect might have impressive credentials but will they be passing your project to less experienced junior staff or draftsmen?)

• What permits will be needed? If so, will the architects be responsible for getting those permits? (Unpermitted work can prevent you from selling the property and even subject you to hefty fines and repair fees to get it to code.)


• Do they only provide the design plans or do they offer to oversee the project from start to finish?
 

When you've chosen the best architects in Queens NY for your specific needs and priorities, make sure they are licensed by the state since it's required by law. (All architects in Queens NY bearing the Prime Buyer's Report-TOP 10 symbol have already had their license verified by our research staff so you don't have to.)
