How to select a designer

Useful tips on how to select your designer

Selecting your building designer is pretty much like selecting any of the professionals that are part of your life.

The design is probably the most important part of the building project that you are about to embark on. Selecting the right designer may be the key to achieving a successful building project.


The first consideration is to find someone with whom you can easily communicate, who listens to you and who will offer constructive advice which enhances what you have in mind.


Of course, it is also important to choose a designer who has the requisite skills and knowledge to complete the project.


  • Selecting someone who is recommended to you by friends who have had a positive experience and are a member of the Building Designers Association.
  • Choosing a Building Designers Association member ensures that your designer will be kept up to date with all the latest information and products and is encouraged to offer quality service and good design.

Builders, construction companies, developers, project managers & the general public, use building designers to design their buildings and prepare all of the necessary working drawings and documentation needed for approval and construction.
