When it comes to making sure your building work is of the highest standard, architects can be worth their weight in gold.  More than qualified professionals with a passion for design, they’re the people who ensure that all construction work complies with building regulations, with advice and input that can be of great benefit in the long run. 

Do I need to use an architect? 

While there’s no law to say you have to hire an architect, if you think you need planning permission, it’s probably best to consider it.  Whatever the building project, an architect can be involved in all phases of design, right through to completed construction. 

What do architects do? 

Architects work on a variety of building projects that can include remodelling, renovations and new design plans. As well as designing buildings, they’re also responsible for how they interact with their environment, conserve energy and deliver safety and visual appeal.    

Working throughout the process to make sure their design is followed correctly, an architect will give you a functional design that’s aesthetically pleasing, economically and environmentally sustainable.   

They’ll usually start with concept drawings and then provide construction drawings, or 3D renderings and videos of what your future home will look like. 

One of the most important duties of an architect is to manage and supervise construction.  With contacts in the industry, they’re well placed to help you find the best project managers and buildings to save you money. They’re also the central communication point between all contractors to ensure the project runs smoothly. 

It’s easy to find architects in Sheffield 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 do I find the right architect in Sheffield?

Whatever the scope of the work you need done, it’s important to hire the right professional to suit the individual job.  Many architects have their own specialities, so it’s definitely worth making contact with a few different firms and individuals.   

As well as designing the initial concept, architects can help you select and hire other professional subcontractors, which may include builders, engineers and landscape architects as well as interior designers to help you select furniture and finishes.   By choosing someone who knows the Sheffield area, you’ll stand to benefit from their knowledge of: 

* The local environment and climate 

* Reputable contractors, tradesmen and materials suppliers 

* The building regulations for your suburb or zone 

* Local authority planning rules

Once you have chosen your architect, you should have a fairly clear idea of your budget limit as well as the style of house you have in mind.  If you’re looking for more passion in work and have more money to spend, you may also consider working with a more expensive, smaller boutique practice. Or you may choose an individual or larger architectural firm for a more affordable option.

Finding a Sheffield architect through Homify is easy. You’re able to see where they’re based, their speciality, plus you’re able to read customer reviews before you decide on who is right for you. 

How much does an architect cost in Sheffield? 

Most architects work for an hourly rate or an agreed fixed fee that’s based on a percentage of the construction costs.   While professional architectural services aren’t cheap, they’ll definitely save you money in the long run, but 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.

Are there any building restrictions in Sheffield?

Building regulations make sure your home is structurally safe, while planning permission is more about how a building looks. It’s best to make sure you’re aware of any changes in building regulations in England which fall under the Building Act 1984.  As well as setting standards for design, these regulations ensure that all construction complies with health and safety, fuel and power conservation and disability access standards.

How much does it cost to build a house in Sheffield?

The average house sold in England and Wales in 2017 had a floor size of 104m², while flats averaged around 49 m².  Taking these together, the average size of a property is 90 m². In Sheffield, most sales of semi-detached properties sold for an average of £175,753, terraced properties for £143,452 and detached properties at £310,921. 

It’s always difficult to predict exact costs, but as a rough guide: 

* A new build in areas outside of London range between £1,200 to £3,000 per m², depending on fixtures and finishings 

* The cost of a single storey extension outside of London is anywhere between £1,200 and £1,500 per m², and about 50% more for a two storey. 


* Make sure you get 3-5 quotes 

* Agree the total figure and payment schedule up front 

* Remember to add on 10-15% for professional fees for the architect, planning application, building regulations, structural engineer and so on 

* Remember VAT

Interested in Sheffield architecture?

Dating back to medieval times as a market town, the city of Sheffield has seen its fair share of changes. Before its growth during the Industrial Revolution, the oldest domestic buildings were built in the late 15th century and the turn of the 16th century.  As well as manors, abbeys and churches, Sheffield’s Castle was one of many destroyed during the civil war. While many residential buildings were constructed at the turn of the 20th century, by 1917 house building had ceased. Today, the city is home to a few landmark buildings spanning Victorian and classical styles that include the popular Sheffield City Hall, built in 1920. Today, Sheffield is experiencing its own contemporary revival, with its acclaimed £130 million 'Heart of the City' project that will see more retail units, pedestrianized areas, public spaces and other residential and commercial developments.  Highlights of Sheffield's futuristic new look include the somewhat controversial Sheffield Cheesegrater and iconic Diamond buildings.
