Principles

This is where the Architect can become an important fgure within in the project by helping and advising on all aspects of the process from initial appraisal, preliminary design proposals, detail designs, planning applications etc, to on-site construction and certification upon contract completion

The Architect, by education, training and experience, is well equipped to advise on all matters related to building works etc. and to assist you in all stages of the building project and to administer the building contract impartially between the employer and the contractor.
