Objectifs du programme

Architectural Technologists contribute to the development and completion of an architectural project or assist throughout its construction, as defined by the Architects Act, the Engineers Act, the Public Buildings Safety Act and the Professional Code. They may therefore produce drawings and promotional material, design construction details, write specifications, estimate construction costs, coordinate construction work, inspect the condition of an existing building, verify building compliance with laws, standards and the construction code, and contribute to maintaining the quality of an architectural heritage. The scope and the volume of tasks vary according to the type of business, and the type of work, and whether the individual occupies a salaried position or is self-employed.
