In order for buildings to be constructed, architects have to design them.

These innovative minds prepare scale drawings and architectural designs while making sure their visions adhere to environmental, safety, and other regulations. The architect also notes information regarding design, structure specifications, materials, color, equipment, estimated costs, and construction time.
