Architectural Assistants work with Architects and other professionals such as Engineers, Quantity Surveyors, Interior Designers to competently design buildings and deliver architectural projects across scheme phases, from the initial client briefing process where objectives are agreed and feasibility studies conducted, through conceptual and technical proposals, to construction. In collaboration with other members of a project team, they respond to client requirements by preparing, reviewing and refining building design using various media such as 3D modelling, drawings and model making. An Architectural Assistant is a major step towards becoming a fully qualified Architect.
