Architects don’t spend all their time in the office; construction site visits are a big part of ensuring that projects are progressing as planned and open up a great opportunity for direct communication with the construction team and the project owner.
In this career, each day’s tasks are different, and I’m fortunate to be able to get outside to witness the progress of construction and collaborate with a broader team. Site visits take place in the snow, wind, rain, and sometimes on beautiful sunny days.
