Your property – often a home – is one of the largest and most important assets you have. If you have concerns, it makes sense to get advice from an independent professional. That’s where residential architects in Melbourne (and all over Australia) are worth engaging. An Archicentre Australia architect can help you to work out a sensible course of action that gives you the confidence to proceed with a strategy.

Architects are amongst the most highly qualified professionals in the building industry and can provide expert advice about all aspects of building construction and maintenance.

An Architect’s Advice Report service will include a site meeting with your architect to discuss concerns, an investigation of the issue and the preparation of a written report outlining recommendations, all for a fixed fee.
