How to manage your design team
A lot of Clients who are new to construction instinctively think ‘right, I will hire an Architect and then they can do the drawings and I can send them onto a builder…….and so on’.
This is not necessarily wrong. But it would be a huge mistake to abdicate your responsibility to yourself, your family or your business to research, appoint and manage your Architect.
If you make the wrong choice on your Architect it can really come back to haunt you. Imagine you appoint an Architect to prepare drawings for your project and you hate their design. Imagine if you love the design but then it turns out the Architect is really great at design but terrible at time management, self management and project management.
There is a power imbalance between most Clients and their Architects. A typical Architect who is qualified with the RIBA will have spent at least seven years training to become qualified. So, its reasonable for a Client to trust their Architect and let them make a lot of decisions. But this would be a mistake. The Client must set the brief for the Architect and manage the Architect to ensure they meet the brief. If the Client appoints the Architect to project manage the build then the Client needs to manage the Architect.
The sad fact is that every Client must stay on top of their consultants, builders and suppliers.
