The Architect’s Role in Construction Observation

Construction observation is a critical part of the architectural process, as it ensures that a project is built according to the design and specifications provided by the architect. During construction, the architect’s primary role is to ensure that the project is built according to the design and specifications provided. This includes monitoring the work of the contractor to ensure that it meets the requirements outlined in the contract documents. Additionally, the architect is responsible for verifying that the contractor has the necessary performance and labor/material bonds, as well as acceptable insurance. In addition to the primary responsibilities outlined above, architects also have several other responsibilities during construction. This includes monitoring conformance to sustainability requirements, as well as verifying the issuance of a certificate of occupancy by the building official.
