WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN AN ARCHITECT, ENGINEER AND SITE MANAGER?
Architect has a long techno-artistic University education. Building Inspection requires an architect for demanding buildings and sites of historical and cultural value, and often in coastal areas. Finland is famous for its architects.
Constructor plans structures, makes cost accounting and can even draw ordinary houses - though without artistic education.
Site Manager represents the owner, and is thus not employed by the contractor or prefab factory. This responsible supervisor coordinates the construction work on the basis of the plans, in cooperation with the Chief Designer.
Chief Designer is required in Finland for every building project. He cross-coordinates Engineering with Architect planning, and ensures that all plans target to the same goal. Responsible supervisor can act as the Chief Designer for ordinary buildings. However the Architects do have a good reason to be Chief Designers for their own designs. Otherwise the result may surprise all.
All of the previous are necessary for a high quality building - and our office gladly offers you all these services.
