WHY DO YOU NEED AN ARCHITECT ?

Administrative records are often cumbersome and the law unacquainted by ordinary mortals. An architect will avoid waste time and will advise you on steps to follow according to the project you have.
The architect is often the indispensable ally when undertaking heavy work. Construction, restoration, design reorganization...
If your project does not require a professional, consider meeting a professional. An expansion or development project is not always simple. The architect has, first of all, an advisory role: he sells an intellectual work that will make the best of a site.

OBLIGATION TO APPLY FOR AN ARCHITECT ?

The obligation to apply a professional for projects on an existing building is defined precisely in the urban planning code. As a general rule, any major project must be carried out by an architect. Compulsory Works Damage insurance requires the presence of a prime contractor to supervise the building site.
The use of an architect is obligatory for works subject to a building permit for more than 150m² of living square meters.

THE ARCHITECT: A USEFUL EXPERTISE FOR ANY TYPE OF WORK
AN AMORTIZED COST

Hiring an architect can incur an additional cost. It varies between 10 and 15% HT of the cost of the works. However, this cost can be amortized quickly. On the job site, the professional allows control of costs and is often useful for negotiating with companies.
In addition to its advisory function, the architect analyzes the quotes of the companies. It coordinates the trades. It enforces building rules and standards.

The use of an architect can be profitable in the longer term, in case of resale of your property. An architect’s house is still in effect and does not resell to the m² habitable but rather to the blow of heart.
