An architect is a professional educated in the intricacies of building design and planning. The practice has been around for centuries and many improvements have been made to make the process easier, and yet at the same time more complicated. There are many different kinds of practitioners in this field but the focus here is the professional who dreams up building structures and makes these dreams come true.


A client employs an architect to design and make the plans for a building. The structure could be for a commercial, residential, or mixed-use building. Usually, the client gives preferences to the designer regarding what he or she may want the outcome to look like. In some cases, free range is given for the design. When it is presented to the client, he or she can make changes, offer suggestions, and ask for the relevance of the many aspects of the building. The owner should always hold a degree of influence over the design, even when free range is granted. Especially for residential structures, the designer might want to get to know the owner better for insights into his personality. Homes often reflect the personality of the owners, whereas office or commercial buildings are mostly constructed to maximize the space or to showcase something that the owner wishes to showcase. In commercial cases, the professional may be asked to make designs for a group of buildings as well as the grounds of the area.

Other responsibilities of the architect include, but are not limited to, providing the necessary documentation in regards to the drawings and specs that are to be used for the actual construction of the structure. They are passed to the client who will approve their aesthetic value. After receiving approval from the client, these will need to be shown to the proper government agencies to pass muster for compliance with federal and local regulations. These drawings and specifications may include the different aspects of the structures like electrical and plumbing needs. These documents are also the basis for the cost of the entire project. When the construction is underway, the practitioner will be responsible for the supervision of the implementation of his plans. This means that he will need to visit the construction site in order to make sure that the contractor who has been tasked to build the structure stays true to the plans. The architect usually specifies the mixtures of the concrete to be used for the building as well as the other measurements for the materials to be used.

The fees that the architect collects from his clients are usually on a percentage basis for each project. Although there is no fixed rate that is regulated by the government, there is an average percentage that most agree upon to charge their clients. It is then up to the professional if he is willing to lower the price of his services when the client asks for it.
