The architect is a trained professional who is central to the development of both the planning and the design components that form the basis for the construction of a building. Derived from the Latin word architectus, the main purpose of an architect is to produce a design for a physical structure that meets the aesthetic, structural, and safety factors that must go into the construction of any type of public building.



Architects design buildings and other structures. In addition to considering the way these buildings and structures look, they also make sure they are functional, safe, economical and suit the needs of the people who use them.



Following are the main jobs and responsibilities of an architect during different phases of the work:



Starting the Project

The architect talks to the client about expectations, project requirements and budget. This information forms the design brief.



Design Phase

The architect analyses the design brief and the building site conditions, and determines the best location and orientation. The architect then develops ideas through rough plans, sketches and models. These ideas are brought together into concept design drawings.










Design development, documentation & building approvals

The architect compares the concept design drawings with the design brief and develops the technical detail for the project with the project team. Detailed drawings and specifications are prepared for the builder. The drawings are lodged to obtain local authority building approval. The method of engaging a builder for the project is determined.



Construction

The architect works with the builder and other project team members to ensure that the project is constructed in accordance with the drawings and specification.



After construction

Projects have a warranty period called the defects liability period. It is the architect's responsibility to follow up any relevant issues or outstanding work with the client and the builder.
