How to Hire an Architect
Thinking of hiring an architect for your next project, but want to understand the process better first? Learn how to hire an architect with this free guide from the Boston Society of Architects (don’t worry, the guide is relevant for anyone who is thinking about working with an architect).

- Working with an architect
- Budgeting a project
- 10 Questions to ask your architect
- The role of the builder
- Energy management…
…and more. If you’ve thought about bringing on a professional to help your design ideas become reality but are unsure how to proceed, this guide is a great first step to understanding how to work with an architect.
And, for those living in Massachusetts, to help you start your search, the guide also includes a clickable list of BSA member architects who do residential work.
