ITEMS TO LOOK FOR IN A DESIGNER


EXPERIENCE
You have heard it a million times, and it is true. There really is no substitute for experience. This is especially true for design professionals.

EXAMPLES OF WORK
While in the designer's office ask to see some of his/her latest work. If nothing else, at least it is something tangible and somewhat easier to compare as you interview various design professionals.

REFERENCE MATERIALS
Look around the office. Today's design professionals must stay on the cutting edge of their profession to compete. This requires a great deal of reference material such as books, manuals, code texts, catalogues and samples of materials.

FINISHED PRODUCTS
Ask to see photographs and request addresses of actual homes that have been built in a design similar to the one you are contemplating.

REFERENCES
Inquire about a current list of former clients whom you may contact to discuss the designer's past performance.

EDUCATION
Has the candidate had specific training in architectural technology?

CONTINUING EDUCATION
Engaging in ongoing edication is vital for building designers to improve their professionalism and to stay informed on the many advances in the building and design industries. Ask about this.
