What is a Danish Constructing Architect?
The following description as a general for the profession.
A Constructing Architect is a very important link between the client, architect, engineer, supplier, craftsman and responsible authorities.
As a Constructing Architect you work within both superior planning in the designing phase and be the one that will be in charge of the whole designing project and/or the final building management on the building site.
One of the finest assignments of a Constructing Architect is to be able to speak with all the members involved within the building sector and make them able to work together. This is done by the multifarious knowledge, meaning that a Constructing Architect have to know about work and possibilities/assignments of all the collaborate partners on a project.
The Constructing Architect is centered in the project and process. By this knowledge and position in the project the Constructing Architect is perfect and ready to be the one that carry out the drawing project material and the descriptions.
From the sketches of the architect the plan drawings can be made and include the necessary information from the building regulation plus the engineer and building material supplier. From here on the section, facade and details can be made and later the final description to complied, and the project can be send out in tender all normally made by the Constructing Architect in close collaboration with all the members involved.
The designing Constructing Architect works close side by side with the architect though out the whole designing phase. The designing Constructing Architect often takes over the project after the overall sketching and design have been made by the architect. The architect is still very close in the project and works with there strong parts as form, light, color etc. The Constructing Architect is normally the one with the big overlook and control of the project after he steps in the designing phase.
One of the main instruments for the designing Constructing Architect is AutoCAD and it is here the strong side comes to light by the combination of knowledge of material combination/use, law/building regulations, conditions for people with disabilities, fire issue, planning, knowledge of construction on site etc.
The main assignment is to design and draw the whole project in co-operation with the architects vision and ideas, the client financial circumstances, the responsible authorities, the building supplier and the managers and craftsman on the building site.
There are two way in the Constructing Architects education. One is the designing Constructing Architect and the other is the Civil Engineer Constructing Architect.
Briefly told the designing Constructing Architect works for the architect in a architect office, and the civil engineer Constructing Architect works for the contractor in an office and/or on the building site.
The designing Constructing Architect can also be called the projecting Constructing Architect withes maybe will the more correct description will the work is projecting the material for the municipal authorities, contractor and craftsmen.
Offend the designing Construction Architect makes the inspection of the building site and leave the building management to the civil engineer Constructing Architect.When that is said then it is very important to state that there is no role that one education is better then the other at work in the office or the building site. A lot changes between the two in there profession life to become better and learn both sides.
The Constructing Architect education gives a multifarious job options mostly inside the building sector.
I am educated and are working as a designing Constructing Architect.
