Initial Consultation Booking
Probably the most important decision anyone embarking on a building project of any kind should make, is to book an initial consultation with an RIAI Registered Architect.
The consultation is an opportunity (with no commitment) to discuss the potential project with a qualified professional who can give you impartial advice tailored to suit your specific project.
An initial consultation with Ian Black Architect will encompass the following topics:
- Assessment of the property & potential for development.
- Advice about the feasibility of the project.
- Discussion about your requirements/ expectations for the project.
- Discussion about project budget , timescale , building method ie -self build or contractor
- Advice about construction costs relevant to your project.
- Advice on statutory obligations that apply to your project.
- Advice on how an architectural service works & associated fees
- The consultation does not include design proposals, as that is part of the service if hired for the project.
- I charge an initial ‘on site’ consultation fee of 200Euro (inc VAT@23%) payable in advance.
- This consultation fee will be deducted from the first invoice if commissioned for the project.
- Please note on site consultations more than 20km from our office will need to be arranged at a higher cost due to additional travel time & expenses involved.
You will Be Required to Provide the Following Information Before the Consultation (if available)
- Address of property or site
- Eircode of property or site
- Evidence of ownership ie -Land Registry map or Reference
- Any drawings of existing property if available
- If planning permission has been previously granted or refused please provide the Planning Register reference.
