From the perspective of control is advantageous for the builder when it comes to two people, both roles but can provide one person with authorization, "said architect Vít Janků. For buildings that require authorization or notification, it is necessary that the documentation prepared by an authorized person. "In the preparation of the construction project must always correspond to the authorized person of the particular field. On site is also important coordinating role for all occupations with the design, engineering, and architectural aspect of the work, which led to the wrong building has never fails, "concludes Janků.
