The fact that you are ready to hire an architecture company in Illinois is a sign that you are close to beginning significant work on your home or business. But before you agree to work with one specific architecture company, there are a few questions you should ask.
Can I See Your Portfolio?
When you ask to see an architecture company’s portfolio, experienced firms will not hesitate to provide you with examples of past projects. A good portfolio will allow you to see examples of past projects from multiple angles and will allow you to see the specific talents of multiple architects working at the company.
Can I Talk to the Architect in Charge of My Project?
Working with an architecture company in Illinois means that you will be working with a group of professionals with architecture skills. But your project will still have a primary architect in charge. This is the person you will want to talk to before you agree to work with the company, in order to make sure that the two of you are on the same page creatively and financially.
How Long Will the Project Take?
While most projects will experience unexpected delays before they reach completion, having an end date in mind is crucial. This question also allows you to determine if you and the architecture company have similar expectations about your project.
