Topic: selection of architect / contractor

1. one contractor-A quotes rate per sq mtr (Rs in Lakh+). another contractor-B says that he will charge on market cost of materials purchased, labour cost, services / machinery used etc + 15% of his commission at each stage of construction and present his bills for payment.
Question: contractor A or B, who should be selected for economical and trouble-free construction. Please give reasons.

2. Is it more advantageous to hire the service of an Architect ? What are the advantages of engaging an Architect ? Please reply.

Mr. Vishwanath,

1. Contractor-A is viable, you should take material specifications indicated in the contract, and completion time class.

2. Advantage of engaging architect is many, just for an idea
a.He gives you good planning as per your requirements till you convinced so that there will not be any alterations,
b. He gives specifications including the structural,electrical,plumbing,wood work drawings etc.
c.He gives periodical inspections till the completion

Dear Vishwanath

     At first in my opinion one should be very clear about the plan of the building/ house to be constructed, the specifications to be used during the construction, knowledge about the requirement of the materials used in construction and finally  you or your any trust worthy have time to spent during the construction or not.

If you have detail/ estimated quantity of material and labor than you are in better position to bargin with the contractor to settle  the resonable rates and specifications. If you have time than read the gharexpert.com website start construction sub section that will give all answers of your questions and you are be able in better position to make your judgement about your sweet home. Some of links of articles are given below for ready referance.
