Project Architect Advice

Q: What do you wish you knew about your job when you first started out?

Project Architect in Irvine:
"A job for people who are passionate and committed."
To be successful you need to love what you do. Architecture is not for the faint of heart. It is a demanding profession, requiring long hours and late nights, incredible amounts of stress and constant deadlines. It is for the type of person who obsesses over getting details right, and is committed to seeing a project through to completion against all odds and immense obstacles. Don't do it for the money - you will likely be disappointed.
