Certainly ‘NO’. Hiring a designer always helps you to keep to budget and time line. When a designer is appointed, he visualizes for you, prepares drawings and graphics for you. So you have an idea as how the things are going to be and get clarity on it. Designer creates perfect drawings and details and only gets that much executed. This helps in wastage of time, labour and money in redoing or reworking. Many a times we have proved that with ADD on board, actual cost of designing and consultancy plus execution is lesser than the job bill by contractor with repairs and reworks without prior planning.
