architects are responsible for coming up with initial concepts and designs, architectural technologists are more concerned with the technical side of construction. They work closely with architects and other building professionals to resolve any potential design problems before construction starts.
Work activities can vary depending on the project, but typical duties can include:
selecting the best materials and processes for the project
surveying sites and identifying location benefits
carrying out feasibility studies and risk assessments
assessing environmental impacts and identifying legal issues
analysing architectural plans and drawings, highlighting any possible risks or problems and making amendments using computer-aided design applications (CAD)
specifying the appropriate technology and tools to be used in the project and advising where this requires deviation from the initial design plans
liaising with the architect, surveyors and other construction professionals, sometimes managing the design project team
preparing documents to help with getting planning permission and similar approvals
visiting sites to check progress and inspect work
