When you want to complete a section, decide which part of the work you want to do and how much you want the architect to be involved. Making a list of your wishes and priorities with a useful source, as well as extracting the images you like and don't like, is very useful for both you and the designer.
A more complex and organized form of outsourcing is hiring outside local or international companies. Such a company effectively becomes a design partner who is easily integrated into the company's architectural design team.
Outsourcing architectural companies can also guarantee scheduled deliveries as they usually have more buffer resources and a larger number of employees.
You can visit the project website and see the finished product yourself. Also, ask if there were any problems during the project and how to solve them. Be transparent about your budget for architects.
Sometimes the architect's fees include additional costs for the 3D model, travel, overtime, materials, and changes to the original design. Architects can also bill fixers (similar to prepayments) at the start of a project. Ask about every detail in advance so you won't be surprised later.
Today, most architects in their projects use 3D visualization. With that, an architect can show you the exact picture of the finished product. You can see your final design from every nook and corner. If you find something uncomfortable or inadequate, you can ask the architect to change it.
