As an Architect, especially for those of you who open your own company, do you ever get into the situation where it is so hard for you to get new client? Do you know what’s wrong with you or with your company? Most people will say it’s because you are ‘newbie’ in this field and you lack of experience, that’s why only few people want to use your service.
It’s also important to remember that a computer is only as creative as the person entering the data. When designing in three dimensions, an architect can create specialized, unique spaces that fit any homeowner’s lifestyle.
Contractors often have continuing working relationships with architectural firms. The larger contracting companies may even have an architect on staff. Such relationships may result in cost breaks for the customer.
A colleague wanted a staircase rebuilt, so he hired an architect to draw up the plans. Because the contractor the architect used regularly would be busy for the next six months, the colleague tried to find another on his own. Only one contractor answered the call. After about ten minutes of amicable chatting, the colleague handed the architect’s plans to the contractor.
