In Case Study 1 the Architect has been assigned a project by a client who has a private construction company. The issue with that is that the client and the construction company are trying to cheat the architect. They are removing some of the cement from the concrete mixture to reduce cost.
The Architect should tell the contractor about the client’s scheme. That’s because as an Architect we have to follow and oversee a certain set of codes, one being a code that has to do with the strength of concrete. Architect’s also have to make sure that the project they are designing protects the health, welfare and safety of the public.
