He advises and defines with him the structuring of the spaces in order to fulfill one or more given functions, in an aesthetic and ergonomic concern in the design of both the exterior and interior and to achieve maximum use of a land lot.

He then represents the project owner to select the various companies taking part in the construction and to ensure that the various phases of construction are carried out within budgets and deadlines.
The architect’s contribution is the assurance of the best value-for-money ratio in all the stages of the design,
The originality and functionality of the design
The final reception of buildings
The efficient use and minimization of maintenance costs
