A client centred service: Architects provide a service that extends well beyond producing a set of drawings. Adept at identifying the aspirations and needs of their clients, architects will bring their special skills, knowledge and experience to a project.
Value for money: Not only can architects provide value for money, but professional attention to detail will achieve value through the most efficient use of space, and careful selection of materials and finishes. Environmental sensitivity, energy efficiency, low runing and maintenance costs can bring extra benefits to your project and long long term savings.
Freedom from worry: Architects can guide you through the complex procedures of planning permission and building regulations and monitor the builder's programme of works through to completion. RIAS members are obliged to carry profesional indemnity insurance - giving you peace of mind.
Imagination: Whether you are looking for tradition or innovation, boldness or understatement, an architect can lift your project out of the ordinary. Many people will offer to alter your building. It takes an architect to maximise its potential and do it with flair, imagination and style.
A building project, whatever its scale, can be daunting, but the same basic criteria apply, be it a simple house exetnsion or a large office development. When you use a chartered architect you are employing someone who has undertaken seven years of professional training, the longest in the building industry.
At Dualchas, our team of architects incorporates both flair and experience, and can provide you with the client-led service which will add value to your project. Whether it is from leading a team of consultants for a feasibility study and consultation process, exploring design ideas on projects large and small, or delivering a high quality finished product, Dualchas has the skills to make your project a success.
