ARCHITECTS:


An architect is a person who is involved in the planning, design, and oversight of a building's construction. The word "architect" (Latin: architectus) derives from the Greek arkhitekton (arkhi, chief + tekton, builder"). In the broadest sense an architect is a person who translates a user's requirements into a built environment. Architects must frequently make professional decisions that affect the safety and well being of the general public.

An affiliation to the Council of Architecture (COA) and membership of Indian Institute of Architects and Degree in Architecture is one way of ensuring some professional responsibility of the designer concerned. Designers who are members of the COA are obliged to follow the Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct laid down by the body.
 
 
INTERIOR DESIGNERS:

An affiliation to the Indian Institute of Interior Designers (IIID) is one way of ensuring some professional responsibility of the designer concerned. Designers who are members of the IIID are obliged to follow the Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct laid down by the body. Individuals with a five-year degree in architecture may also practice interiors and for major works involving demolishing of internal walls it's advisable to consult one. Since professional credentials are not easily verifiable, your best starting place is the grapevine. Ask friends, relatives and colleagues to throw up some names. Did you like the way a friend's house was done up? Ask him for a reference.
