When you are ready to embark on a new commercial building project, the first step is to hire an architect.

Define Your Requirements

Before you start looking for an architect, it is important to define your requirements. What type of building do you want? How big should it be? What features does it need? These are all important questions to answer before you begin your search.

Check References

Checking references is an important step in the hiring process. You want to make sure that you will be working with someone who has experience and knows how to get things done. What’s more, you want to ensure that each potential candidate has experience working on commercial building projects, a degree in architectural design from an accredited university, and a license to practice in your state.

Interview Potential Candidates

The next step is to prepare a budget. This will help ensure you have enough capital to complete the project, as well as determine how long it will take to finish. It’s important to remember that your budget should include more than just the cost of construction — you’ll also need money for permits, taxes, fees, and emergency expenses.

Sign a Contract and Get Started!

Once you find an architect that meets all of your requirements, it is time to sign a contract. This will ensure that both parties are in agreement and the project can move forward.
