Do I even need an architect for my project?

The short answer to that question is – No. You don’t. There is no legal requirement in the UK to employ an Architect for construction projects. However, home extensions and renovation projects represent large investments in your future wellbeing and the experience and skillset an architect brings will likely add value far beyond the sum invested in their services.

How long does it take to build an extension?

We’re regularly asked about the timeline for residential projects by homeowners which can take up to 11 months before construction work even begins.

We designed an infographic to visualise the answer to this question. View it here.

How much does an architect cost?

Architects fees not only vary depending on scope, project complexity and level of service but also in the methods of their calculation; from lump sums payable at different project stages, to percentages and hourly rates too.

For a typical a rear extension and ground floor refurbishment in London with a construction budget of £200K +VAT, an architect’s fee would be around 13% equating to £26K +VAT. The work up to planning submission would equate to £9,100 +VAT.
