Architects are key to the process of property renovations and developments. They act as the first point of design for initial planning permission designs.  Architects plans, design and oversee the construction of a building/project. Architects consider many different elements to a design, using their environmental and technical knowledge, along with design / construction management and business understanding to communicate important attributes of a project.

Usually architects are hired by a client and have responsibility for creating a design that meets the client’s requirements and is functional for their appropriate use. Architects are involved in every process of the design and as and when the design/ construction of the build becomes more advanced an architect will provide detailed specifications of the design or particular elements of the building.

The DJS Research construction team have conducted research with architects across a range of projects talking with senior architects about different build processes and designs, gaining a strong understand how important architects are to a build process.
