An Architect Is To A Building, What Parents Are To A Child.
Most people do not understand how complicated it is to make a building- that is until they find themselves lost in the ocean of design options, building codes, zoning laws, contractors, products, variants, design options, and so on. All buildings have their own signature, good, bad, or ugly; i.e., there are no standard yardsticks to go by.
Architectural services include design, preparation of construction documents, and construction administration. Architects also provide a wide variety of services including feasibility studies, architectural programming and project management.
