Construction architects apply their creativity and knowledge of engineering to plan and design houses, apartments, schools, utility buildings, commercial complexes and other buildings based on their client’s requirements.
About 68 percent of all architects work at various positions and levels in the architectural, engineering, and related services industry. Such mainstream architects plan and design the construction’s appearance, aesthetic appeal, layout, placement of air-conditioners and ventilation systems, structural integrity, and strength. The role of the architect starts at the conception of the project and ends when the project is complete, and entails providing technical and other drawings for the construction.
Major employers of architects include residential and nonresidential building construction firms, government agencies responsible for housing, and other large government departments such as the U.S. Departments of Defense and Interior and the General Services Administration.
