WHY USE AN ARCHITECT
Your interests First.
As a Chartered Architect, Paul McShane Architecture provides services that extend well beyond producing a "set of drawings." Proficient at identifying the aspirations and needs of our Clients, we bring our special skills, knowledge and experience to a project that a typical draftsman is unlikey to have.
Value for Money
We provide value for money in terms of our fees, but professional attention to detail will achieve an engineering value through the most efficient use of space, careful selection of materials and finishes. Environmental sensitivity, energy efficiency, low running and maintenance costs can bring extra benefits to your project and long term savings.
Freedom from Worry
We are registered with the Architects Registration Board (ARB), our governing body. By asking for proof of 'ARB registration,' you can very quicky ensure that you are employing an "Qualified Architect" and not a 'Draftsman' or 'Architectural designer.' We can guide you through the complex procedures of Statutory Approvals; Planning Permission and Building Regulations and monitor the builder's programme of works through to completion. ARB, RIAS & RIBA members are obliged to carry professional indemnity insurance - giving you peace of mind. These approved bodies are associations only available to 'Qualified Architects.'
Whether you are looking for tradition or innovation, boldness or understatement, we can lift your project out of the ordinary. Many people can offer to alter your building. It takes an Architect to maximise its potential and to do it with flair, imagination and style.
Many building projects, regardless of scale, can be daunting but the same basic principles apply, be it a simple house extension or a large office development. When you appoint Paul McShane Architecture, you can be reassured that you are employing an 17 years of experience; 8 years fully qualified and 9 further years of professional training. Anyone styling themselves 'Building Consultant', 'Architectural Designer', 'Plan Drawer' and so on is unlikely to be an Architect, and does not have comparable skills or knowledge.
