Architects and builders are usually invited afterPurchase or lease of real estate. And then usually a lot of flaws are revealed. Today we will tell you an instructive story that will convince you that it is necessary to consult with architects and builders in advance.

So why not consult a specialist before buying? This will avoid the many sad mistakes that we will describe. A professional architect is necessary at the stage of choosing an apartment, because for a competent conclusion it is enough for him to look at the apartment plan and compare it with your requirements for the organization of the environment and interior. Suppose you want to have a large kitchen-living room,But the choice of such apartments is not great, you have to look at apartments with large kitchens. But if you show the layout to the architect, he will determine whether it is possible to organize a kitchen-living room in this apartment and whether such an association will be legal. For example, if an apartment is gasified, then it is impossible to combine the kitchen with the adjoining room, just as it is impossible to unite if the premises are divided by the capital wall.

His instructive story with the editorial staffIrina Mitrofanova shared. Irina Mitrofanova Construction company Interio-Line. - My customers decided to open a cosmetology clinic in the center of Moscow. They found a room in an old building and rented it for several years. Naturally, before that, a business plan was drawn up for the whole project, including the creation of an architectural project and the carrying out of repair work. But the budget for design and repair did not take into account the fact that the building is old-fashioned and may require reconstruction, which will "eat" the lion's share of budget money. Unfortunately, to the selection and evaluation of the premises forThe rent was not attracted either by a professional architect or by builders. Thus, risks of a certain nature were not taken into account, and credit was intended for the project. After the dismantling work, an unpleasant picture was opened: window and door openings, only eight pieces, were on the verge of collapse due to violations during ventilation and air conditioning, which was carried out several years earlier. I'm sure that carrying out repair work in neighboring premises also played a detrimental role, and norms and rules for such dilapidated buildings were not taken into account. But the owners (or tenants) chose to sew up everything "quietly" in plasterboard and not invest in reconstruction activities. Further during the dismantling work in this roomIt turned out that the old ceilings are worthless: they are rotten, distorted and require a survey, a reconstruction project and its implementation. All these activities are quite costly, both financially and temporally, and in fact they disrupt the implementation of the business plan, drawn up without the involvement of experts to assess the property before its lease. This room, of course, was evaluated in terms of location and prestige of the area, but the condition of the premises at the time of the lease was not taken into account by anyone. As a result, there were unplanned costs, and most importantly - there was a huge loss of time, which for any business and especially its beginning is a disastrous factor. Consult with the architect before buying orLong-term lease of any real estate will make sure of the correctness of the choice and in the possibility of altering the real estate to your requirements. In addition, when a third independent opinion appears in such a difficult question, it gives an opportunity to look at real estate critically and not make an unprofitable purchase.
