Yes. All architects serve to protect the Public Interest, but with different roles.
Depending on the size of your project, you will already have a Design Architect and possibly a Project Architect. Some firms will even set up a third architect to oversee construction — even if they were not involved in the design and development process.
We’re all striving for the same goal – to give you an amazing space. But, sometimes when difficult decisions need to be made, we are influenced by our particular interests. The Design Architect team is protective of their design. The Project Architect is worried about construction details & schedule. And if the contract is between a benevolent developer and the architect you have even less influence on the process.
The Advocate Architect is your voice to make sure your building is exactly what you need — especially when funding changes.
