The most tangible deliverable your architect provides is a set of construction documents–the drawings and accompanying written specifications that describe the building for the contractor. Yet these documents are not a product. Architects don’t sell products, they sell a service: the design of buildings, which requires a rare combination of reason and imagination, honed through rigorous training and experience. The architect’s unique and indispensable contribution to the building endeavor is the ability to integrate many different concerns–utility, comfort, beauty, stability, durability, economy, efficiency… –and to shepherd this complex set of goals through the complicated processes of entitlement, regulation, and construction.
