Architectural/Construction Technicians usually work under the immediate supervision of a registered architect, professional engineer, or construction manager. They perform operational tasks of a technical nature following well-designed methods and procedures set down by their construction supervisors or by architectural standards. Tasks often include producing construction documents from architectural sketches, computations, written and computer-assisted drawings of results, and field inspection of work according to plans.
