The Best Architects in Broward County FL Are the Ones Verified as Safe To Hire

Architects in Broward County FL are required to be licensed by the state of Florida for your protection, which requires a degree, an internship, and passing an exam adminstered by the Florida Board of Architecture. But those are no guarantee that any particular architectural design firm is doing business ethically, providing real value, and satisfying clients.

Architects in Broward County Florida are not required by state law to have professional liability insurance; however, all architects bearing The Prime Buyer's Report-TOP 10 designation do have that liability insurance coverage to reimburse you in the event of a loss due to errors, in addition to passing all other requirements for status as Prime Buyer's Report-TOP 10 such as our research phone calls to their previous clients, sufficient length of time in business, verified license, good complaint record, and more.

Questions to Ask Architects in Broward County FL

Step 1: Describe Your Intent to the Architects
Detail your goals and ideas for the building design to the architects, and how you intend to use it. Be consistent in your explanation to each architect so that each one gets to respond to the same information.

Step 2: Answer The Architects' Questions & Write Down What They've Asked
To personalize the design, good architects would have questions about the purposed uses of the design, your living habits, and more. Part of their job is to create a blend of your needs and style with the practical requirements of the building code, and with your budget. The specific questions an architect asks you will reveal their likely ability to do this.

Step 3: Ask Questions of the Architects & Note Down The Answers

Ask these questions about their previous experience, abilities, background, and processes:

• How long have they been an architect in Broward County FL? (Different areas have different temperatures, soil conditions,  sunlight exposures, etc that should accounted for in the final design. How much previous experience they have doing design plans specific to your location shows the likelihood they know these aspects and how best to design for them.)

• How many other designs have they done specifically in your city that were built? (Different cities have their own codes that must met for plan approval, and different processes for getting approved. Previous experience getting design plans approved by your own city indicates their ability to do a design that can get approval and in a timely way.)

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

• Do they only do the architectural design or can they manage the whole project from start to finish?

• Will the architects provide names and numbers of clients you can call for 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 do they structure the fee?

• How many other designs have they done that are just like yours? (Green design, traditional architecture versus modern, commercial design versus custom home design, etc.)

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

• What do they do to stay up on current design trends or on recent innovations in materials or technologies, such as continuing education, seminars, etc?

• How long will it take to complete your design plans once they begin?

• What is their educational background?

• Who at their firm will actually be doing the design work? (The principal architect might have good credentials but what if they pass your project to less experienced junior architects on their staff?)

• Will they show you proof of professional liability insurance that will reimburse you for a loss due to error? (All architects in Broward County 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.)

When you've chosen the best architects in Broward County for your own needs, make sure they are licensed by the state of Florida. (All architects in Broward County bearing the Prime Buyer's Report-TOP 10 symbol have already had their state license verified by our research staff so you don't have to.)
