Whatever the building project you have in mind – be it a renovation, new build or remodel – an architect is the key to making sure all work is done to the highest standard.  Providing valuable advice and input, that’s worth its weight in gold in the long run, architects deliver a professional service that’s centred on a passion for design. 

Do I have to use an architect? 

When it comes to making sure your building work is of the highest standard, architects can be worth their weight in gold.  While you don’t have to hire an architect, it’s probably best to use one if you need planning permission and you can involve an architect in all phases of design, right through to construction. 

Why should I use an architect? 

Architects are responsible for combining aesthetics, economic and environmental sustainability in any design.  As well as delivering a functional design that looks good, architects have to: 

* ensure buildings comply with regulations that cover thermal performance, fuel and power conservation, health and safety 

* manage and supervise construction, while acting as the central communication point between all contractors to ensure the project runs smoothly.

It’s easy to find architects in Leicester on Homify.  Remember that every architect is unique, so look through their portfolios for examples of past work and read reviews or ask to speak to past clients.

How much will it cost me to build a house in Leicester?

Building prices can be influenced significantly by local conditions, local market conditions, size and specification. While it’s near impossible to provide specific costs, in Leicester, a single detached private house around 250m² will cost an average of £1,760 per m². In areas outside of London is anywhere in the range of £1,200 to £3,000 per m², depending on the quality of your fixtures and finishings.   


* Make sure you get 3-5 quotes and remember VAT 

* Add on 10-15% for professional fees for the architect, planning application, building regulations, structural engineer and so on, depending on the size of the project - generally the larger the project the smaller fee percentage. 

* Remember VAT agree a total figure and payment schedule up front

What’s the cost of an architect in Leicester?

Most Leicester architects work for an hourly rate or an agreed fixed fee that’s based on a percentage of the construction costs.   While it’s difficult to pinpoint an exact figure, remember professional architectural services aren’t cheap, but they’ll definitely save you money in the long run. That’s why it’s worth understanding how to negotiate prices up front. 

TOP TIP:  Remember the cost of hiring an architect can vary in different parts of the UK and remodelling projects can be higher because of unpredictable hours. That’s why it’s worth knowing exactly what needs to be done, so you can negotiate effectively.

How do I find the right architect in Leicester?

Whatever the scope of the work you need done, it’s important to hire the right professional to suit the individual job, and looking at their portfolio of similar projects.   

With contacts in the Leicester area, they’re also perfectly placed to help you find the best local project managers and buildings to save you money.  If you choose someone local, they’ll also know the specific local authority planning rules and building regulations for your suburb or zone. 

What are the building regulations in Leicester? 

Building regulations in England fall under the Building Act 1984 and are regularly changed and updated. Building regulations set design standards and make sure all building construction complies with health and safety, fuel and power conservation and disability access standards.

What’s the style of Leicester’s architecture?

Reflecting a wide variety of styles, Leicester’s architecture has a splendid display of Gothic, Baroque, Classical, Victorian Gothic (such as Leicester’s iconic Clocktower) and Queen Anne (such as the city’s Town Hall) designs.  Growth in the city exploded during the reign of Queen Victoria, showing the predominance of Victorian style architecture along the main streets of the city. At the same time, the English Vernacular or Domestic Revival saw Medieval or Tudor styles applied to home with half-timbered, overhanging gables. Throughout the city’s history, many buildings have come to combine elements from different styles, with contemporary homes finding their home in Leicester’s landscape.
