WHAT ADVICE DO THE ARCHITECTS HAVE ON HOW TO PROTECT MYSELF FROM A HUGE MISTAKE ON MY COMMERCIAL PROJECT?
Regardless if this is your first commercial architectural project or your hundredth, you can bet that there will always be mistakes. This is the nature of “reinventing the wheel.” To bring mistakes to a minimum, you must apply “due diligence” to your practices. Here are a few steps to avoid a costly disaster.
Work with Experts
When we say experts, we meet licensed and reputable people. To find licensed architects for an affordable price, you must represent yourself as someone who is rational and logical. Boil down what you want in simple and direct statements.
Hire a Broker or an Architect
Once you have finalized what you want to do with your business, you can get a broker and inform them you want an existing building with those features. However, you can hire an architect to create a preliminary design sketch. Make sure you incorporate the area you need for functionality and use this information to find the perfect location. While sketching the preliminary design, your architect will also know how to calculate the necessities you need such as doors and toilets as well as point you to any potential issues.
Use Your Preliminary Sketch as a Resource
Under many circumstances, your preliminary sketch can be your main resource to find more information. This can be taken to the planning department of your jurisdiction. This process will uncover obvious disastrous issues. You can also take the sketch to a contractor to get an opinion of the cost or why it was a “screaming deal.” However, keep in mind that shopping for a deal can lead you to a huge optimist or liar.
Taking these small simple “due diligence” steps will help decrease the risk of losing money. Are you looking for a sketch and someone you can trust to build your next commercial project in Las Vegas?
