Depending on the client's needs and the jurisdiction's requirements, the spectrum of the architect's services during construction stages may be extensive detailed document preparation and construction review or less involved such as allowing a contractor to exercise considerable design-build functions. Architects typically put projects to tender on behalf of their clients, advise on the award of the project to a general contractor , facilitate and then administer a contract of agreement which is often between the client and the contractor.
This contract is legally binding and covers a very wide range of aspects including the insurances and commitments of all stakeholders, the status of the design documents, provisions for the architect's access, and procedures for the control of the works as they proceed. Depending on the type of contract utilized, provisions for further sub-contract tenders may be required. The architect may require that some elements are covered by a warranty which specifies the expected life and other aspects of the material, product or work.
CHAPTER 3. Architecture
In most jurisdictions, prior notification to the relevant local authority must be given before commencement on site, thus giving the local authority notice to carry out independent inspections. The architect will then review and inspect the progress of the work in coordination with the local authority. The architect will typically review contractor shop drawings and other submittals , prepare and issue site instructions, and provide Certificates for Payment to the contractor see also Design-bid-build which is based on the work done to date as well as any materials and other goods purchased or hired.
In the United Kingdom and other countries, a quantity surveyor is often part of the team to provide cost consulting. With very large, complex projects, an independent construction manager is sometimes hired to assist in the design and to manage construction. In many jurisdictions, mandatory certification or assurance of the completed work or part of works is required.
This demand for certification entails a high degree of risk - therefore, regular inspections of the work as it progresses on site is required to ensure that is in compliance with the design itself as well as with all relevant statutes and permissions. Recent decades have seen the rise of specializations within the profession. Many architects and architectural firms focus on certain project types for example, healthcare, retail, public housing, event management , technological expertise or project delivery methods.
Some architects specialize as building code, building envelope , sustainable design , technical writing , historic preservation US or conservation UK , accessibility and other forms of specialist consultants. Many architects elect to move into real estate property development , corporate facilities planning, project management , construction management, interior design , city planning, or other related fields.
Although there are variations from place to place, most of the world's architects are required to register with the appropriate jurisdiction. To do so, architects are typically required to meet three common requirements: education, experience, and examination. Educational requirements generally consist of a university degree in architecture. The experience requirement for degree candidates is usually satisfied by a practicum or internship usually two to three years, depending on jurisdiction.
Finally, a Registration Examination or a series of exams is required prior to licensure.
Professionals engaged in the design and supervision of construction projects prior to the late 19th century were not necessarily trained in a separate architecture program in an academic setting. Instead, they often trained under established architects. Prior to modern times, there was no distinction between architects, engineers and often artists , [ citation needed ] and the title used varied depending on geographical location. They often carried the title of master builder or surveyor [ citation needed ] after serving a number of years as an apprentice such as Sir Christopher Wren.
The formal study of architecture in academic institutions played a pivotal role in the development of the profession as a whole, serving as a focal point for advances in architectural technology and theory. Architects' fee structures are typically based on a percentage of construction value, as a rate per unit area of the proposed construction, hourly rates or a fixed lump sum fee.
Combinations of these structures are also common. Overall billings for architectural firms range widely, depending on location and economic climate. Billings have traditionally been dependent on the local economic conditions but, with rapid globalization, this is becoming less of a factor for larger international firms. Salaries also vary, depending on experience, position within the firm staff architect, partner, or shareholder, etc. A number of national professional organizations exist to promote career and business development in architecture. A wide variety of prizes is awarded by national professional associations and other bodies, recognizing accomplished architects, their buildings, structures, and professional careers.
The most lucrative award an architect can receive is the Pritzker Prize , sometimes termed the " Nobel Prize for architecture.
