In each state and territory of Australia it is a legal requirement that any person using the title ‘architect’ must be registered with the Architects’ Board in that jurisdiction.
Architects provide consumers of building services with a range of professional services, including:
- strategic and land-use planning
- urban design
- provision of preliminary studies, design, models, drawings, specifications and technical documentation
- coordination of technical documentation prepared by others as appropriate and without limitation (consulting engineers, landscape architects and other specialist consultants)
- construction economics
- contract administration
- monitoring of construction and project management.
