Architectural technologists help to bring projects to fruition through making the technical decisions necessary to solve design problems. They need a sound understanding of the processes of design and construction and the management tools, particularly CAD, for the communication of design information.
The skills they require are wide ranging, from design and architectural composition, technical analysis and presentation, to the business and management skills necessary for contract procurement and administration.
