Such endurance is the outcome of integrity, knowledge and commitment so eminently present in his work. This volume attempts to outline these qualities that go to make an architect a complete professional.
This volume defines, the role, duties and responsibilities of architects towards profession and society. Related aspects like tenders, contracts, valuation, causes for dilapidation, management of project work, easements, bye-laws and planning, Acts related to profession, and lastly various opportunities present today to enlarge the scope of their services have found mention in detail.
It recognises the web of relations with clients, contractors, authorities, professional bodies, his own employees and consultants that needs to be networked seamlessly for a successful practice.
The value of this edition stands increased with the addition of tables, figures, illustrations, case studies and worked examples apart from appendices and multiple choice questions in a lucid manner adopting summarisation and point of reference techniques for easy absorption and retention for effective use by students and professionals alike.
