While the creative element of an architect’s work can seem very appealing to many considering a career in this field, some may not realize that architects carry significant liability when it comes to ensuring that their design is sound to meet code requirements, fulfill the vision of their clients, and be safe and comfortable for all occupants. Engaging Rutwind Brar, architects can be best assured that they are protecting their own assets as effectively as possible while building their career and reputation in their industry.
