Whether you are looking to renovate, remodel or start a new build, every project can benefit from good design—and hiring the right design professional can help to make your vision a reality.
Having said that, finding the right design professional can help you to smoothly navigate the building and approval process, maximise your profits and minimise construction headaches, but choosing poorly can cost you lots of time and money.
What Services Do Design Professionals Provide
Many design professionals offer their clients a “one-stop shop” for all building-related services, but they can also perform a reduced number of services, depending on your needs.
Design professionals offer a range of services, including:
- Meet-and-gather sessions, where they collect information about the project and the building site
- Sketch design or 3D modeling
- Design development
- Building documentation
- Construction documentation
- Coordination of consultants
- Variation assessment
- Budget management
- Managing approvals; and
- Contract administration.
