Kitchen Extension

I have full planning permission and construction drawings for a large kitchen extension to the rear of my house in South Dublin. The drawings were carried out by an architect, but I am unsure if I require the architect to oversee the construction of the kitchen extension or just finish using him now. What is the general practice for Builders In Dublin ?

We have carried out numerous house extensions in both scenarios and it does not make a difference from our point of view. The reason for this is because we would build your kitchen extension to meet all regulations and as per architects drawings regardless of his involvement in construction or not.
But to answer your question, there is no right or wrong answer, but there are some pros and cons. Obviously the only negative point for you is the extra cost of the architect having to draw up the plans, which drives up the overall cost of your kitchen extension. The positive to having the architect involvement is that he will oversee the work is being carried out exactly as per drawings, and meeting any regulations. He will deal directly with the extension builder on your behalf. If you have the budget I would recommend their involvement as it reduces the pressure on yourself.
Front Porch Extension

I want to employ a builder in Dublin to build a small extension to my front porch. The area of the house extension is below the threshold for planning permission, and therefore planning permission is not required. I know what I want, but do I need an architect?

Yes Curran Construction would still be interested in providing you with a builders finish only.
