Frequently Asked Questions before hiring an Architect

  • How do Architects Charge?

    Architects generally charge on percentage basis or quote a Lump-Sum amount for the entire project depending on whether they are just designing, supervising or managing everything all together. Some architects also charge on a per sq. ft. basis, where the amount goes from 10-100 rupees per sq. ft.

  • What does the cost include?

    The cost of the architect includes the detailed plan in 2D or 3D of the entire project. The architect provides detailed drawings, landscape plan, flooring and lighting ensemble, reference images etc. Basically, the entire layout in detail is given by the architect to the client.

  • What do I need to provide?

    Architects mainly need their clients to have a clear picture of what they want and expect out of the professional in their head. If they keep on shifting their structural views, it is very difficult to establish a professional relationship with the architect. A clear, firm position on what they need and trust in the architect’s creativity is all they need to put in.

  • What are the general complications that occur during a project?

    The layout on paper or the architecture drawing is very hard to copy by an architect because of several practical complications. There are government and environment specific guidelines to be followed by the architect, which can lead to a minor difference during the execution of the project. Also, clients should be creatively flexible. Sometimes, their requirements aren’t practically possible and they should understand that. The cost exceeding the budget can be a hassle, but the client should always keep a margin of 5-10% extra for additional changes.

  • How much time does the project take?

    Building a general model of about 2-3 floors takes around 9-12 months, wherein the planning process and designing takes almost a month to finish and the construction takes about 10-11 months. The time for renovation projects is decided after viewing the site itself based on the architectural plan. As per people’s choice, the architectural design might be modern architecture or contemporary architecture.

  • How can I reduce outside noise in my house?

    Tell your architect to brief you with Sound Absorbing materials such as acoustic ceilings and padded carpeting which make up the modern day architectural engineering. Sound-blocking curtains, solid doors and double glassed windows are great ways of reducing the noise inside your house.

  • How can I make my house more environments friendly?

    Use ore of Energy efficient equipment while remodelling your house. Demand for good insulation at your homes, which will curb energy wastage. Ask your architects to indulge in Sustainable architecture. Probably, you could hire an architect who specializes in Green Architecture.

  • What is the design process?

    The process generally starts with meeting the architect and planning the structure of the project. After the layout is frozen, the engineers and technicians come into play and work on technical things, catering to their respective niches. After resolving the technical stuff, the contractors start working with the construction under certain supervision. Interior designers, who have expertise in home architecture, finish up the project using their insight into architecture and design.

Hiring Guidefor Architects

Architects in Kolkata

Architects are in great demand today in Kolkata, not only for commercial projects but for residential buildings as well. If you too are looking to hire architects in Kolkata for a residential or commercial project, UrbanClap can provide you with the best architects in Kolkata within your budget.

Why Should You Hire an Architect in Kolkata?

  • To interpret your vision and needs An architect collates all your thoughts and comes up with a house design or office floor plan that is acceptable by everyone. He or she may visit the site if needed, and ask you all kinds of questions to get an absolutely clear idea.

  • To create detailed building designs and drawings An architect does this by hand and/or by using computer-aided design (CAD) applications. Once the preliminary design is approved by you, the architect creates the final construction drawing.

  • To liaise with related professionals A lot of coordination with other stakeholders like construction managers, surveyors, engineers, etc. is required to give shape to the potential project, according to the plan designed.

  • To handle paperwork Whether a house, apartment or a commercial project, there is always a lot of paperwork involved in getting a building constructed. Architects can write and prepare the required contracts, as well as authorise and sign their consent to ensure progress of project according to plan. They also create reports and proposals, wherever necessary. They take into consideration constraining factors such as city infrastructure legislation, environmental laws, practical applications, safety, etc. and apply for necessary permits.

  • To guide you with the right materials Residential architects in Kolkata are aware of the best home construction material providers, and they are also aware of which material is best for the house. Thus, they can verify the quality of the materials being used.

  • To supervise and review the project Architects are required to visit the building site, meet clients, inspect all areas of the project, adapt plans according to the situation and resolve issues, before handing over the final building to the clients.

Questions To Ask Architects in Kolkata Before Hiring Them

  • Do You Have an Architect's License? Many architects practise without a valid license. Using the services of an unlicensed architect is fine for smaller projects or for when you're on a very tight budget. However, for multi-storeyed home construction projects, or for high-end home designing, it is best to seek the services of a licensed home architect in Kolkata. Even commercial projects like schools, colleges, and hospitals require the services of professional, experienced and licensed architects.

  • What Type of Projects Have You Worked On Previously? If you want an architect, who has designed single-floor family homes, there is no point going for a high-end, over experienced architect. You can simply hire architects and interior designers in Kolkata, who have worked on multiple single-floor family homes. Likewise, if the project is a multi-storied apartment building, you would need the services of an architect, who has worked on several apartment construction projects. Therefore, do not forget to ask this question, as this can help you connect with an architect, who is experienced in construction project similar to yours leaving little room for errors.

  • What is Your Style of Work? It is important to be on the same page with or have similar design interests as your architect, so that you don't feel disconnected from time to time. Ask your architect how he works usually, so that you know what he deems important and at what stage, how he intends to keep you updated about the progress of the project, how he handles problems that may occur, etc.

  • How is Your Fee Calculated? Some architects in India, who work on a project from start to finish, may charge a percentage of the total cost of the project. Other architects calculate their fee on a per square foot basis. Some architects may simply state a fixed fee before the start of the project. Therefore, it is best to ask this question to have a clear idea about costs.

  • How Long Do You Take to Complete a Project? This will not only help you track the progress of the project and hold the architect accountable in completing the construction or renovation on time, but you can also plan other things better, such as your date of moving in, or what your next steps could possibly be.

Certain other questions that you can ask your architect range from 'whether he would show you the building designs as 2D drawings, 3D Computer-Aided Designs (CAD) or as miniature designs. You can also inquire about what challenges could arise during the project and what you should be prepared for.

What Services Do Architects at UrbanClap Provide?

  • Floor/Working Plans 2D blueprints of either your entire property, a single floor or even a room, as viewed from above. These would include layout of utility lines and wiring systems, various measurements, furniture layout, and anything else that is necessary.

  • 3D Interior Designs Customised visual illustrations of the final look of the interiors of your property.

  • Elevation Designs Scaled drawings which show all four sides of a building with the perspective flattened. Elevation plans give a builder an overview of how the finished building will look.

  • Horizontal Expansion/Floor Addition Increasing the footprint of the floor by expanding the kitchen, adding an extra room, etc. or adding an extra floor to an existing building to create further functional space.

  • End-to-End Turnkey Construction Solutions A project taken up by the architect from inception to the very end, and in which the client gets a finished project by the end of the contractor with keys to move in.

Benefits of Hiring an Architect from UrbanClap

To find an architect near you in Kolkata, you would either ask your friends and family, or you would use online search engines. Simply typing ‘Architects Near Me’ will have Google throw up a plethora of options. However, filtering the options for the best architect in Kolkata can be a time-consuming affair. Instead, you can simply log on to UrbanClap and hire highly-experienced architects in Kolkata within your budget. Here are the benefits of hiring different types of architects in Kolkata through UrbanClap.

  • COA-Approved Architects at UrbanClap are approved by the Council of Architecture (COA), a government body which allows architectural practice of registered professionals. This is a quality parameter at UrbanClap and part of our onboarding quality checklist.

  • Background-Verified Top verification firms in India have given the go-ahead on the credibility of our architects, after necessary address, criminal court and national identification verification.

  • Minimum Experience of 3 Years While all our architects have a bare minimum experience of 3 years, a professional being acquired in the Construction category has a minimum experience of 5 years and a valid degree or masters in architecture.

  • Easy & Convenient Hiring an architect from UrbanClap is extremely easy and convenient. Once you feed in your requirements, the right group of architects themselves reach out to you without you having to visit various offices.

  • Budget-FriendlyThe rates of architects in Kolkata at UrbanClap are completely transparent, and only those architects will reach out to you who fit your budget.

How Much Do Architects Charge in India? And What Factors Does the Cost Depend On?

An architect’s charges for a project will be either of the following options:

  • A percentage of the total cost of the project (as in the case of most architecture firms in Kolkata);

  • A per-square-foot rate calculation (as in the case of small architecture firms or local architects);

  • A fixed fee for the whole project (as in the case of larger, more well-known and more experienced architects).

Points to keep in mind regarding an architect’s charges:

  • It is important to negotiate when you get a quote from the architects for residential homes as they may initially quote a higher price. Hence, negotiate for a price closer to the prevailing market rate.

  • Don’t expect a quotation immediately after placing a request. That will happen only after site visit.
