All Public Facilities are required to utilize an architect to design that building Architects are responsible for the Health, Safety, and Welfare of the Public regarding a facility and its site surroundings Architects design buildings! Architects also design schools, churches, museums, hotels, hospitals, stadiums, skyscrapers, and houses What does Design mean? Simply, a plan. Every building has to have a plan in order for it to be built Construction company builds the plan and the architect oversees the construction, start to finish, so that its done right!
Many, many things must be thought about when designing a building – how many people will use the building, what is the purpose of the building, how will the building function, and where is the best place to put the building on the site and in the city? How should a building look? What is the context of the building and what is the impact on the surrounding buildings (homes, etc) Style – many different styles of buildings Architects must be good artists and scientists when they design a building Above all, a building must be safe for the public and relatively pleasant to the eye!
