Specific Costing Saves You Money

May 24, 2022

When you are ready to build or renovate your home or commercial space you will be faced with a plethora of options. Smart choices in the planning stage of your construction project are essential if you want to stay within budget – and have a build experience that doesn’t cause a huge amount of undue stress. While you may feel like hiring an architectural designer to draw up your plans is something other people do, you may be surprised by the myriad of ways hiring an architectural firm can actually save you money.


Specific Costing Saves You Money

At Powerhouse Architectural in Tauranga we have the skills to translate your ideas into solid planning. Accurate construction drawings are the cornerstone to good flow when it comes to your costing for materials and labour and having everything put down on paper by an architectural firm that knows the area and the tradespeople that you will be working with can help you to refine your ideas. Often times there are some clever features and fixes that a good architectural designer can use to hone a half-formed idea – and that may see you getting exactly what you want – but better.


Being Represented By An Expert

Project management on a construction site is not for the fainthearted, there is a lot of juggling involved and sometimes it may feel like you are herding kittens when it comes to coordinating trades and making sure that you are being charged properly. Our Tauranga Architectural designers are able to ensure that you are getting what you paid for and that your design is being followed to the letter. Having an architectural designer on your team also ensures that should your builder, electrician or plumber run into a roadblock, you can quickly get expert advice and a redraw. This heads off any botched ‘fixes’ which can end up costing you money.


Solutions That Happen Before They Become Problems

Running scenarios before an issue occurs can save you untold money when it comes to a construction project. If you have moved out of your home, or you are having all your meals out while your kitchen undergoes an overhaul, you need things to happen on time. Our Architectural designers in Tauranga can ensure that you get back under your own roof before you spend all your savings on Air BnB’s and burgers, and we work through complications on the page before work starts that will see you hitting timeline goals around procurement of materials. Your architectural designer is also the best person to make any snap calls when it comes to shifting a design that may come up during your project.

Whatever the size of your project it makes sense to work with an architectural designer. Call Powerhouse Architectural Tauranga today to find out how we can help you get what you need with the budget you have.
