Architecture is a complex discipline with many demands on architects.

Your job as an architect is not only to conceptualize and design a building. There are a multitude of regulations and laws that must be followed. The many trades must be built by different and specialized companies. In addition, the work must be coordinated with other planners, such as structural engineers, engineers for technical building equipment and representatives of manufacturing companies.

In addition to these tasks, there is also the compliance with regulations and requirements of the building and environmental authorities. There are so many things that you as an architect are no longer only the master builder but also the project manager.

This brings us to a very important aspect in modern architecture: project management. Here, in fact, all the above-mentioned points must be interlinked and organized in terms of time. In addition, adherence to the budget and costs on the construction site are of enormous importance.
