Difference Over Our Competitors?
Who To Choose - Our industry is so unregulated & confusing. Planning can be made by anybody, on a drawing board, self taught in CAD, even with no formal design, construction qualifications. If planning is submitted with total disregard to construction details - It's almost impossible to construct the approved drawings. Its not simply planning, construction drawings you need but working out how the internal spacial spaces work - You need all 3 components together to make it feasible - "You" need "Surety - It Can Be Built" - for your fee. "You will find professional looking "Online" 3rd party/national quote comparison websites" tempting you with fixed fee's for their volume sales,"No Site Meetings Required" faceless telephone discussions (designing space's remotely, not on site - is incredulous!introducing freelance architects/designers (even we have been approached - "Definitely Said No") leads have to be paid before contacting you, architectural technologists without "Part 3 Exams" no membership ARB (Architects Registration Board), D&B inc design, engineers, surveyors, planning consultants, even a retired building control officer, all purporting to be designers yet are unqualified. "Most located outside Horsham, difficult to administer & an alarming worrying thought if  urgent additional site meetings are required to deal with site issues & Would you ask an unqualified doctor to be your surgeon?

They appear to giveaway the design part, their services, although cheaper simply do not offer the same protection, level of service/quality that is required. Unqualified practices will use "ARCHITECTURE or ARCHITECTURAL" on their sites, the word "ARCHITECT" is protected in law & can only be used by qualified architects (ARB registered)."Architect is an essential investment into the capable planning & designing of any project, our additional expense is offset by the potential increased "Value - Your Home"

Who Is A Qualified Designer ? Who To Choose..
Ask for their "PART 3 - ARB registration number, they "Will" be qualified by law, "PART 2" ARB or student RIBA membership will "Not" be qualified - As local Chartered Architect's, we're concerned about local planning rules, how it will be constructed, structural implications, logistics, access, drainage, Building Regulations that may apply, likely cost's. If all of these elements are not considered during the initial design/planning stage "Attention To Detail" they may present problems later - Can YOU afford for your project to fail?
