Questions to Ask Architects in Dallas County TX


Step 1: Describe Your Needs to the Architects
Explain your ideas  and goals for your building design to the architects, and how it will be used. Be consistent in how you explain everything to each architect so that each one is responding to the same information.

Step 2: Answer Their Questions & Write Down What They've Asked You
To personalize your project, good architects should have a list of questions about the purposes of the design, your living habits or working habits, and more. Part of an architect's job should be to produce a blend of your needs and taste preferences with the practical needs of the building code, and your budget. The particular questions an architect asks you will indicate their ability to do this.

Step 3: Ask the Architects Questions & Write Down Their Answers

Ask these questions about each architect's abilities, background , and experience:

• For how many years have they been architects in Dallas County? (Different regions have different soil conditions, temperatures, sunlight exposure, etc that the design should account for. How much experience they have designing in your location specifically demonstrates their likely ability to know these aspects and to design for them.)

• How many architectural designs have they done specifically in your city? (Different municipalities have different codes that must be adhered to, and different processes for permit approval. Previous experience getting plans approved by your local city shows their likelihood to give you a design that can get approved, and in a timely manner.)

• 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.)

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

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

• What is their education?

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

• Who at the architecture firm will actually be doing your design? (The principal architect might be impressive but what will that mean if they pass your project to mere draftsmen or less experienced junior architects on their staff?)

• 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?

• Do they carry professional liability insurance that can reimburse you for a loss due to error? (All architects in Dallas 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 Dallas County for your specific goals and taste, make sure they are licensed by the state of Texas. (All architects in Dallas 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.)
