Re: Looking for Architect to do Renovations

What kinds of services are you expecting from an architect? In my case, it was great for initial consultation, getting an idea of the Swiss construction industry, regulations, materials and even some concepts. But when it came time for actual implementation, I found the architect merely doubled all construction costs. So I opted to cut the architect out of the construction process to save cost, whenever I could. It meant having to deal with workers directly, but I believe I got 2 to 3 more times the output for my budget.

There were risks, but there are always risks. But am happy with my end result.
