Reasons to employ Belfast Architects A.L.D.A.

We are Belfast Architects, Landscape Architects and Architectural Technologists.

The role of all Architects is to design a building, that serves your requirements, and which is within your budget. Design matters. Many buildings are the public image of your business, and good layout aids business efficiency. 

We work for you, not the builder, nor any supplier. Our prime role is to protect your interests. 

Use our expertise. We can advise you on the feasibility of your intended project, be that alterations of existing buildings or new developments. We can assist you with the appointment of other consultants, with contract documents, tendering, and monitoring the progress of work on site.

Financial control is always important. In that context it is essential to ensure that your drawings, and tender documents, are as thorough as possible. Architects. design the layout, appearance and construction of your building. The builder, or contractor, follows that design. Their price is based on the tender documents produced. 

Design and Build Option. We can help you with design and build options.

Employ qualified professionals. Architects are the profession most trained, and qualified, to design your office, the factory you work in, your home and even the modest house extension. It takes a minimum of seven years training to become an Architect. When they qualify they are regulated by the Architect's Registration Board.

It is a prosecutable offense to use the title unless registered (and thus qualified). Despite this there are many who claim to be Architects, but are not qualified to do so. All Architects in the UK are listed by the Architects Registration Board. If someone is not listed there then they are not an Architect. For Chartered Architectural Technologists visit CIAT. Importantly make sure they are chartered (MCIAT).

Buildings are major investments.  Employ properly qualified professionals, you know it makes sense.

House Extensions & Home Improvements.

Has your home become just too small to accommodate a growing family and other demands? If so, you may either need to extend your home or move to another house.

The main advantage of extending, and improving your home, over moving, is probably the reduction in social disruption. Your children remain in their existing schools, and they retain contact with their friends. If you have good neighbours, local friends and are members of nearby clubs and groups all this is retained.

All building is a substantial investment, so it is important to employ properly qualified people to ensure that the work is sound. A badly designed scheme is a poor investment.

Belfast Housing. An increase in renovation necessary.

House Extesion Belfast.

Renovation of existing property in NI must be a priority if a major housing shortage is to be avoided. Currently there are only meagre grants available for repairs. These grants are means tested. There are also grants to improve the thermal efficiency of dwellings. For many both forms of assistance would be of benefit.
