Fun Fact Friday: Architecture as a Discipline

By April 5, 2019No Comments2 min read

Encorus Group offers several interconnected disciplines that lead to the assembly of functional buildings and other structures. Our firm not only offers engineering disciplines, but can provide architectural services as well. For this week’s Fun Fact Friday, we will take a look at the architectural discipline at Encorus through the words of Senior Architect Dan Sullivan, AIA, CDT.

“As an architect at Encorus, I either support engineering services when their scope involves a building, an alteration to an existing building, space, or built component (roofs, walls, windows, etc.)  due to the addition or modification of mechanical, plumbing, electrical, or fire protection systems.  I also serve as the lead discipline in predominately architectural building type projects. In architectural / engineering building projects I am responsible for the building programing, planning, building mass, three dimensional, and exterior aesthetic quality of the building, working closely with the client to achieve their goals, and ensure that the project budget stays within the client’s budget for construction.

As the lead discipline, I work closely with engineers in the schematic, planning, design development, and construction documents phases to help in the selection process to coordinate and fit all the engineering systems in the building. Architects also monitor costs associated with those systems to ensure that they are within the construction budget.”

Architecture can be found on both the interior and exterior of every building / structure and is an important part of modern infrastructure. Encorus has provided professional architecture services to several clients in the commercial, healthcare, municipal, and institutional sectors, as well as other divisions.
