Despite the tremendous developments and evolution in the field of Architecture, people still often ask this fundamental question, “What exactly does an Architect do?”, or ,” What does making a building really involve?” , or , ” If the building is being constructed on site, why does the architect need an office?”
Here are 4 info graphics which give some idea about the work going on at the back end in the process of a structure being made. *This is just a general idea, the processes may be different depending on the nature of the project.
The graphics have been divided into 4 stages :
- Design Stage
- Tender and Site Mobilization Stage
- Construction Stage
- Completion Stage
Did you know, that the more time and effort one puts in BEFORE the project starts (in planning), the better the project takes shape ?
This is a very simplistic representation. A successful project depends on the active and dedicated participation and contribution of all the stakeholders.
