It is very important to understand the difference between a contractor and an architect.
Who is an architect? Simply put, an architect is in charge of the design of your whole home. An architect is involved throughout the construction process but three fourth of his work is over in the planning stage.
Having an architect will help you to plan better and manage cost more. Apart from designing and planning your home, your architect can also help you with:
• Getting the required permits – permission to start construction, encumbrance certificate etc.
• Finding a reliable contractor for the construction of your home
• Ensuring the project doesn’t violate any environmental regulations.
After helping you complete your planning, the architect’s job is to act as a monitor and ensure the construction follows the overall building design.
