How Long Does It Take Architects to Draw Buildings

If you want a home or a building designed, you may explore different options and different architects. You may want to see completed designs that they have helped on and you may want to speak to other clients that have worked with them.  It makes sense to ask around. It helps to know an average time of how long it will take the architect to provide you with something you will like. However, the thought that is on most people’s mind is how long will it take for their chosen architect to draw their new building or home.

The answer to this question depends on many different factors. Most architects like working closely with their client so the length of time it takes could depend on your availability as well as theirs. It could vary depending on the size of your building or home and it could depend on how much of a unique  architectural design you want it to have.

If you are looking for a basic, small office building, you could spend approximately four weeks working alongside the architect to design it and get all the blueprints ready for its first inspection with a local planning department. This inspection may take anywhere up to a few months, depending on the designs that they have to go through. Then you have to get a building warrant and this can also take time.

A small home is somewhat easier to get built, but there is still a few weeks of planning for the architect to be able to get your blueprints drawn up. Some may be designed in as little as two weeks. Others could take up to six weeks or so. Again this depends on the details that you want for it to have and how available you are to the architect while he is trying to draw it out.

There is no denying that it takes time to have a building or designed by an architect and put together by a construction crew. However, most small buildings can be completed within a year. Homes are sometimes going to take less time than that. The good news is, as you watch it grow from a thought to a drawing and from a drawing into a building, you will feel that it was definitely worth the effort and the time it took to have it become beautiful.
