Architects create designs for new projects, alterations and redevelopments. They use their specialist construction knowledge and high level drawing skills to design buildings that are functional, safe, sustainable and aesthetically pleasing.

Architects stay involved throughout the construction process, adapting their plans according to budget constraints, environmental factors or client needs. As such, they operate as part of an overall project team; they work closely with a range of construction professionals from quantity surveyors to building services engineers.

Typical work activities include:

creating building designs and highly detailed drawings both by hand and by using specialist computer-aided design (CAD) applications
liaising with construction professionals about the feasibility of potential projects
working around constraining factors such as town planning legislation, environmental impact and project budget
working closely with a team of other professionals such as building service engineers, construction managers, quantity surveyors and architectural technologists
applying for planning permission and advice from governmental new build and legal departments
writing and presenting reports, proposals, applications and contracts
choosing the materials to be used and specifying the requirements for the project
adapting plans according to circumstances and resolving any problems that may arise during construction
making sure the project is running according to schedule and budget
playing a part in project and team management
travelling regularly to building sites, proposed locations and client meetings

Key skills for architects

Excellent communication skills, both written and oral
High levels of creativity, imagination and vision
A keen interest in the built environment and the dedication to see projects to their conclusion
Willingness to work long hours, under time and budget pressure
