Building Design is about applying architectural, engineering and technology developments to the design of buildings. This discipline is largely concerned with the residential design, both single and multi-family, agricultural buildings, and decorative facades for larger buildings, and commercial structures.
The practitioners of building design are mostly architects and structural engineers. As part of planning, designing, and construction of buildings, they create initial and schematic designs of interior and exterior layouts, complete working drawings and specifications that will comply with all applicable building codes and regulations, select materials to be used, identify contractors and oversee construction by conducting on-site inspections.
Working closely with clients, the building designers resolve the formers' requirements into a set of instructions for the construction a building.
