Building a house is an important event in anyone’s life. But it is far more complex than you realise. Many problems can arise during the construction. For a layman this can easily become overwhelming. That is why it is wise to hire professionals to do the job, even if it means extra cost. In my opinion, an Architect is necessary in a building project as s/he has control over all the other persons- technical or non-technical – working on the project.
An Architect is trained in many areas, ranging from landscape design to structural engineering.
