Daily Responsibilities of An Architect

Architects are more necessary and useful to a successful construction project than you realize! They bring a skillset and perspective to the project that most general contractors don't possess. You might think that an architect’s responsibility only deals with assisting with the blueprints, but you're wrong! Architects are very hands-on in many aspects of a construction project. So, what other aspects of the construction process can an architect assist with? We detail some of an architect’s daily responsibilities below!

Help Fill Out & Organize Paperwork

Anyone who has been present for all phases of a construction project knows just how much paperwork goes into the operation. Much of this paperwork revolves around getting the appropriate permissions to build on a specific construction site, building codes to ensure the blueprints are structurally correct, and estimated costs for building materials and construction equipment. Architects help fill out and organize these documents to make sure they get to the right personnel for approval.

Assist With Building Designs

An architect will assist in any way they can with the design of a building. They can be involved in all parts of the planning process. If a contractor already has a set of blueprints that they want to review, an architect will look over these drawings and make changes to improve both a building’s functionality and physical appearance. General contractors tend to gloss over the more stylistic design elements of a building, so an architect can help fill in those gaps. Architects are also tasked with ensuring that the blueprints adhere to any safety regulations or environmental restrictions.

Client Meetings

Architects can be very hands-on in a construction project, which means that they are present for most (if not all) phases of the construction process. They work closely with their clients to determine their vision and goals for their new establishment, and they’ll use the ideas they get from their clients to influence their designs. Depending on what the client wants to accomplish, a building’s design can look vastly different. An architect’s job is to ensure that their vision aligns with their client base's.
