Architects and Home Design
Depending on the size of your project, you may require the services of an Architectural Technologist as well as a Professional Registered Architect, although typically an Architectural Technologist is capable of designing the majority of renovations or custom home builds.
The 2014 Alberta Building Code and the National Building Code outline the limitations of the level of work that can be done by an Architectural Technologist without the need of a Registered Professional Architect. Your project will almost always have an Architectural Technologist involved in the development of any drawings, whether you need the seal of a Registered Architect or not. However, based on specific criteria that may involve large square footage, number of attached units, and other specifics, you may require the services of a Professional Registered Architect.
An experienced Architectural Technologist will provide an abundance of knowledge and out-of-the-box design ideas that will exceed expectations and meet any design criteria. We work with very skilled Architecture Technologists for the majority of our projects.
A full discussion of your project parameters will determine the required skill set for your proposed design.
