There are two kinds of rates in markets one you should hire a simple draftsman or an ordinary architect who will provide you approved map within 50 thousand but it will be only a structural design nothing else and it will be a copy design of any home already constructed.
Another option is to spend Rs 3 or 4 lac hire a proper architect experienced and qualified he will made new design for you structure design out lines of your home interior electrical diagrams plumbing diagrams flooring style wooden work diagram, supervision of electrical structural and civil engineer, plus quantity of material. He will charge you once but will save amount for you and also your home maintenance will be very easy.
Thanks Ibrahim. By spending 3 to 4 lac on architectural design how would I rationalize the savings, if you can elaborate further.
I have asked few of the architects they are saying that, they will provide structural design+Electrification+Plumbing and will also get it approved from CDA within 50 thousand. When I asked them about the supervision and site visits, they said that it will be done by contractor.
This is the main point normally in our market contractors are not engineers or even educated persons how they will supervise you need a technical skilled and qualified person for supervision. I know some architects in Islamabad who even charge 5 lac for each home. How you can save money by hiring a professional architect this is a very deep and detail discussion which can be possible on phone or face to face.
1. As brother Ibrahim said people only paying the Draftsman for a draft which is a copy of someone elses house
2. Hire an architect which will cost around same price as above said but these days architects too dont give regular visits except for one or two during the whole phase of construction and additional visits are charged to the client on top of total payment witnessing no saving as such except for phycological satisfaction for the client. Yes architects help save on big structures. Undoubtly architects should save one allot but due to high fees and lack of commitment they miserably fail to do so.
3. Which has opened doors for the construction companies to come in to play and take all the responsibility and pain to deliver what the client whishes for. At the same time few other uneducated and greedy people calling them selves contractors have started to get business too.
4. Last but not least, this meathod can only be explained on phone. Please drop me an email leaving your contact details so we can get in touch.
