Architects are a part of the construction industry. They design buildings and restore old ones. The architect will start at the very beginning of the project and work all the way to the end to make sure the building is finished the right way. The architect will make detailed drawings of the building, work with the client and contractor, visit the site to make sure the job goes well, and fix problems along the way.
