Architectural designs are a specialization area that requires architects to be able to do the work for us. When it comes to a building permit, this is the authority that a company is given when it wants to construct or demolish or alter a building. When it comes to the HARB which is the historical and architectural review board, this is the board that was developed in order to restore the culture and protect the distinctive and historical culture of townships. In this talk we are going to look at some of the benefits of architectural design, importance of having a building permit and the relevance of the historical and architectural board.
Before approaching an architectural designer you as an individual should be able to know the type of construction that you want to venture in, whether small-scale or large scale so that you can know the kind of designer to approach. You should do research and ensure that the architectural design that you are going to deal with has the relevant experience that is required for the job, so as to be able to avoid delays and errors during construction and design. An individual should ensure that the type of architectural designer that he is dealing with has the correct reputation and according to his previous work he is able to deliver.
It is a requirement of the law to have a building permit whenever an individual or an organization would like to put up any constructions or to do any alterations to already existing buildings. In order to make your work a little bit easier when applying for a building permit, it is preferred that you select a firm to do the application on your behalf because they will know what is required and how it is normally done because they are used to the process and this will ensure that you attain the building permit. This enables you to reduce the time and energy for writing proposals and since the process normally takes quite a while before an individual is issued with the relevant building permit, it would be easier getting a firm to do this on your behalf because they will be able to have the drawings and the designs done the way they should be done and it really makes the process a bit more tiring for you. Importance of using a firm to do the application for you is that they will be able to advise you whether they will be needed for special permits such as the conditional use building permit, the special exemption building permit, and the zoning variances
When it comes to the historical architectural review board they are there to ensure that a town is not completely forgotten with its cultures and its history through the construction of new buildings and adjustments of the existing ones.
