Building and Project Design

Building and project design is required when any building is planned for construction or alteration of use or design. It refers to the architectural, engineering and technical aspects of the design of buildings and constructions. The building and project design team will vary in composition depending on the size and scale of the project. For larger projects, the services of a professional architect or structural engineer will be required. This individual will plan the overall building design, as well as co-ordinating the services of the range of specialists required to see the project through to completion. Smaller, less complex projects might be managed by a building designer, draftsperson, contractor or interior designer (for internal fit-outs or renovations). The composition of the project team involved in large-scale building design will change over the duration of the project, but alongside the architect and/ or structural engineer, the following roles will play a part: building services engineer (responsible for the internal comfort of the construction); landscape architect; specialist designers; quantity surveyor; suppliers and manufacturers; and contractors.
