Do you supervise construction?

Architects do not by law take responsibility for the ˝errors and omissionsţ of contractors. For instance if you have a very sloppy contractor the fault cannot be deemed that of the architect. The architect does what is called ˝construction coordinationţ, meaning he/she would answer all questions that the contractor might have as to how to build the architect═s plans, attends regular site meetings and is available for questions on the phone.
