In the late 90's the Ontario Building Code looked for a way to streamline the building permit process and what they came up with changed the requirements of house plans in the province of Ontario forever.
BCIN (Building Code Identification Number) is a designated number that all designers must carry in order to provide the service of house design in the province of Ontario. Read more on BCIN (http://www.rijus.com/licensedbcin.php)
Rijus Home Design will advise how to select a Ontario approved home designer that will make process stress free & fun as well as guarantee professional and detailed designs.
Besides being licensed with the province of Ontario and having a few years experience under their belt here are a few things to ask the potential designer/design firm.
Ask to see some past examples of their Canadian house designs and pictures of "built" houses they previously designed. Pay attention to the amount of detail they have provided in their designs. Make sure the licensed house designs are detailed, precise, readable and to scale.
Ask about the house designer's college education and background. Some so-called designers are only educated in the construction engineering/management and not in true architectural background. An architectural technologist has to have been educated in the construction processes, as well as in actual exterior & interior design aspects from an architectural stand point. (i.e proper flow of a floor plan layout, proper proportions for roof design, curb appeal, uses and flows of room and specific sizes etc.)
Finally, find a home designer that that has good client reviews. Google the Ontario house designer, ask local builders & building departments. Ask the Canadian custom house designer for a list of contact information of their past clients.
Ask these past design clients the following questions; how was the process? was the project completed on time?, was the price fair?, were the characters and personalities of the home designers easy to work with?, how was the transition from drawings to reality? could the trades & builders work easily with the plans? was the designer available for advise during the construction stage?
Finally, make sure the Ontario approved house design company carries errors & omissions insurance to guarantee building permit in the province.
All in all - spend time researching for an Ontario Licensed Home Designer before selecting them to join together and help design new dream home.
They need to be knowledgeable and confident in what they do.
