ARCHITECTS’ YEARBOOK

INTRODUCTION

The Institute of Architects of Zimbabwe has over the years been producing publications whose main objectives were
to inform the local, regional and international society on Architecture in Zimbabwe. It contains the list and brief
profiles of all registered Architects in Zimbabwe, Associate members, affiliate members and retired members.
The 2019 Yearbook has been further expanded and includes detailed information for those interested in
making a career of Architecture. It provides detailed guidance for graduates of architecture on Registration and
Membership of the Institute.
It is important to note that Architects are not permitted to advertise or to compete with each other on fees for
architectural services. This yearbook is an approved magazine that allows Architects to profile in brief some
of their works to enable clients and other professionals to have an appreciation of the diverse Architectural
talent that Zimbabwe boasts. The Yearbook therefore takes an added significance by being the Principal format
through which the Architect can make you aware of his or her existence. The Institute of Architects of Zimbabwe
collaborates with Structure and Design Magazine in the publication of articles on works done by Architects.
The Institute of Architects of Zimbabwe maintains an office in Harare, and should you require any information
whatsoever on architecture, our Architects Secretary will be delighted to assist you.

WHAT IS AN ARCHITECT?

An Architect is a trained designer of buildings and building related fields, and has expertise not only as a problem solver,
but in being able to analyse and define problems. In analysing a client’s brief the Architect is able to offer alternative
solutions from which a client may select and can offer the client alternative ways of viewing the same problem.

The Architect combines creative ability, technical knowledge and managerial expertise to be able to interpret
a client’s requirements into built form. He takes into account the restrictions of site and budget, of statutory
regulations, of culture, climate and geographical setting and is able to produce buildings and environments that
are useful, well designed and pleasing to their owners and users.

The Architect is the natural leader of the building design team. His multi-disciplinary training in the related
fields of building construction, engineering structures and systems, building economics and budgeting, contract
administration and construction law, combined with his managerial and design skills, give the Architect a unique
overview of the building process. He will advise on the appointment of specialist engineers or quantity surveyors
and co-ordinate their various services to meet the building programme.

Architects are employed in Government departments and parastatal bodies, large corporates, in Municipal
and private offices. Principals in the private sector are required to be registered in terms of the Architects Act
(1975). Architects in Government or Local Government service are exempt. An Architect in the private sector in
Zimbabwe is a qualified person legally registered and bound by a professional code of conduct. He competes with
his colleagues on the basis of skill and reputation. He is not allowed to compete on the basis of reduced fees or by
advertising. As the client’s agent he carries important financial and environmental responsibilities.

WHAT DOES AN ARCHITECT DO?

An Architect can tackle any building problem, however large or small whether urban or rural. Some offices may
have preferences for the type of work they handle, but an Architect coming fresh to a new brief is just as likely to
produce a good answer as one who has tackled similar briefs many times.

An Architect may have particular skills in addition to those already described. He may also be a specialist in town
planning and urban design, or in interior design, or landscape design, or renovation of older buildings.

Most building projects proceed in the following manner, with the Architect taking the project through a number of
stages:

1. BRIEF: Discussions with a client, establishing and analysing the client’s requirements.

2. FEASIBILITY STUDIES: Testing alternative proposals, looking at each in terms of value for money and the
options each solution offers the client. Research into local regulations, site limitations and other constraints.
Some projects do not proceed beyond this or the next stage.

3. PROJECT: Drawing outline plans, sections, elevations and maybe perspective sketches or making a three
dimensional model, to communicate the essential characteristics of the proposed building to a client obtaining
his approval and producing final be design.

4. CONTRACT: Preparation of detailed information required for Building By-laws, Town Planning and other
legislative approvals and for construction. Production drawings show how each building component is
constructed and built against another, while schedules and bills of quantities list and describe all the
materials required. Detail design can involve consultation with other specialists, i.e. quantity surveyors,
structural engineers, and suppliers of specialised equipment, as well as with the client and the Local
Authority. The tender stage requires the obtaining of prices from builders, making recommendations to the
client, preparing the Contract documents for signature.

ARCHITECTS’ YEARBOOK

5. SUPERVISION: The last but not least important part of an Architect’s work is to see that the
building is built in accordance with the original drawings and specifications, and to assist in solving
any unforeseen problems that may arise on site. The Architect works to the benefit of both the
client and the building contractor, and although employed by the client, must remain impartial in
any dispute which might arise.

In addition to these tasks, the Architect is often called upon to carry out surveys of existing buildings, advise on
defects and maintenance problems as well as to advise on alterations that may be required.

HOW DO YOU SELECT AN ARCHITECT?

A current list of registered Architects and firms is always available from the Institute of Architects of Zimbabwe.

Architectural firms range in size from one-man offices to organisations employing quite a number of assistants
and technicians. Some large offices prefer not to be involved in small projects, while small practices may not be
so experienced in larger projects. Some firms have wide experience and larger manpower resources to draw
upon. Others may have exceptional design ability and an enthusiastic approach to their work. No matter what the
size of the firm, all are controlled by qualified Architects trained to be able to deal with your project.

Firms may be contacted directly to find out whether they are interested in your project. Those that are interested
may then be requested to submit details of relevant experience, with a view to making a shortlist for interview.

Such an interview might ideally take place at the Architect’s office where drawings, photographs and models of
his work are available. Questions which may be asked include:

• what special expertise the firm can offer?
• how busy is the firm and their capacity to satisfy your programme?
• who will be responsible for your project, and an assessment of how well you might be able to
work and communicate together?
• does the firm carry professional indemnity or insurance?

This provides cover against the risk of claims which might be awarded against the Architect, which if awarded
against him, could place him in financial difficulties and consequently jeopardize your project.

When all the Architects under consideration have been seen, you may wish to visit at least one completed building
with each Architect you consider suitable for your project.

With all the information gathered, and having carefully considered all aspects, it must then ultimately be your
own judgement as to which Architect you select.

For major projects, an Architectural competition open to the whole profession or to a number of selected
Architects, is often a particularly appropriate method. The extra time and cost involved is proportionate to the cost
of the building, in return for which the client benefits by having a number of schemes from which to choose. The
Institute of Architects of Zimbabwe lay down regulations for the conduct of different types of competitions and are
able to advise and assist in the administration required.

HOW DO YOU APPOINT AN ARCHITECT?

It is important that the scope of the work to be carried out and the fees to be charged are clearly set down
in writing from the outset. To this end the Institute publishes a standard form of Architects Appointment,
which includes the statutory Conditions and Engagement and Scale of Fees. This document outlines in detail
the general and specific duties of an Architect, the manner in which disputes should be handled, or services
terminated. It also sets down the minimum fees chargeable.

12

2019

It is essential in achieving a successful building that client and Architect work together as a team. It is important
that your brief and schedule of accommodation is as complete and well thought out as possible. Strong likes and
dislikes of materials forms or styles should be communicated to the Architect at the beginning of the project.
Bear in mind that he is an expert in translating your requirements into reality and you should allow him to
maximise that expertise, for which you are paying.

Be very frank with your Architect as to the financial constraints on the project and the amount available for the
building. It is then the Architect’s responsibility to design within that budget.

Go very thoroughly into the proposals at the design stage and do not give approval to proceed to the next stage of
work until you are totally satisfied with the proposed scheme.

Once building has begun, try to avoid changes on site. They are much cheaper to make while the scheme is on the
drawing board and can cause significant delays for the completion, as well as giving rise to costly claims being
made by the contractor.

Maintain your interest in the building as it progresses, but never give instructions directly to the builder. Always give
these through the Architect; this is a very common cause of disputes arising on site.

Pay the builder promptly when the Architect certifies that payments are required. Failure to do so could put you
into breach of Contract.

Do not hesitate to discuss any worries you may have with your Architect. He relies on your confidence and trust,
as much as you rely on his skills and commitment to your project.

ENSURE THAT YOUR ARCHITECT
IS THE REAL THING

Unfortunately there are unqualified people out there who are masquerading as Architects - so its worth asking
your Architect to confirm their legitimacy as a Registered Architect - if they are the real thing they’ll have no issue
with proving it to you. 

The title ‘Architect’ is protected by law (The Architects Act 1980), so that only those who have undergone rigorous
training, and are fully qualified and registered, can rightly use it in any context.

Watch out for companies or individuals styling themselves as ‘architectural designers’ or ‘architectural directors’
or ‘architectural consultants’ or other similar wording as this is generally an indication that they are not eligible
to carry out the work of an Architect.

Other Points to note when selecting your Architect:

• ARCHITECT is a protected title and only a REGISTERED ARCHITECT may use this title.
• It is an offence for anyone who is not a REGISTERED ARCHITECT to pose as an ARCHITECT; or carry
out the work of an ARCHITECT.
• It is an offence for anyone who is not a REGISTERED ARCHITECT to carry out NON-EXEMPTED Works.
• It is an offence for any REGISTERED ARCHITECT to submit works on behalf of an unregistered or
unqualified person.

THE INSTITUTE OF ARCHITECTS OF ZIMBABWE

The Institute of Architects of Zimbabwe was founded in 1924 as the Institute of Southern Rhodesia Architects
and became legally established by the Architects (Private) Act in 1929. The year 1929 therefore marks the
legal establishment of the now Institute of Architects of Zimbabwe. Its main objects are to promote the art of
architecture and architectural education in the interests of the community and provide full membership status to
Architects who are registered with the Architects Council.
There are various classes of membership open to other than registered architects; graduate, student and
members of associated professions or other individuals with an interest in architecture. The Board of the Institute
meets on a monthly basis to discuss common problems. Since 1957 the Institute has made every effort to see
a School of Architecture established in Zimbabwe and monitors the examination systems of the Architectural
Technician’s courses at the Harare Polytechnic College, Bulawayo Polytechnic College and those set by the
National Association of Architectural Technicians.
The Institute of Architects of Zimbabwe sets professional practice examinations each year for the purpose
of registration with the Architects Council. The Institute holds conferences and lectures on architectural and
related topics.
The first school of architecture in Zimbabwe was established in 1998 in Bulawayo at the National University Of
Science And Technology (NUST).

ARCHITECTS’ YEARBOOK

ARCHITECTURE AS A CAREER

EMPLOYMENT

By its nature Architecture is predominantly an urban skill consequently most architectural firms in Zimbabwe are
located in the major centres. However, with the shift towards rural development and the establishment of rural
growth, it is anticipated that the Architect will be expected to contribute to the physical development of both rural
and urban areas.

Salaries upon qualification have been varying within the past two decades depending on expertise and
responsibilities taken. Excellent opportunities exist in both the private sector and Government for responsible
Architects skilled in handling local materials and geographical and climatic conditions.

QUALIFICATIONS

Before anyone can practice as an Architect in Zimbabwe, as explained later, he has to obtain certain educational
and practical qualifications from a recognised School of Architecture. These qualifications lead to registration as
an Architect under the Architects Act and to membership of the Institute of Architects of Zimbabwe.

PRACTICAL TRAINING

As previously mentioned, most Schools provide a year’s break between the third and fourth academic sessions.
This inter-weaves practice with theory and gives a refreshing contact with real life. The time may be spent in an
Architect’s office or in other sectors of the building industry such as with contractors, manufacturers, quantity
surveyors engineers, planners or in research. After qualification, a continuous period of two years in Zimbabwe,
which may be with different firms but under the direction and control of a registered Architect, is a requirement
for registration as an Architect in Zimbabwe. Similar experience in another country with a registered Architect of
that country will be accepted.

ENTRANCE QUALIFICATIONS

In general terms the minimum entrance qualification for an architectural course is five subjects from specified
fields of the General Certificate of Education (these are set out in detail below), including two passes at Advanced
Level. It is our policy to encourage a diversity of background subjects and to leave the choice of actual GCE
subjects to sixth formers.

If full benefit is to be derived from an architectural course, both Arts and Science subjects should be studied
at sixth form level. In some schools the mix of Arts and Science causes administrative difficulties in relation to
the Advanced level examinations, if this is the case at your school try to keep up with Arts studies if there is only
a “science” sixth form or vice versa if the emphasis in your school is on the Arts. This dual approach forms a
valuable foundation for architectural studies. The Institute of Architects of Zimbabwe would encourage the taking
of craft and technical subjects as a supplement to the basic subjects, but not instead of those listed below.

MINIMUM ENTRY REQUIREMENTS

Some Schools of Architecture have particular requirements in excess of those set out here and you should check
specifically.

The General Certificate of Education

(a) Candidates will be required to have passes in two subjects at Advanced Level of the GCE together
with passes in three other subjects at Ordinary Level.
(b) Both the Advanced Level subjects and at least two lower level subjects must be drawn from
the following fields of study: English, Mathematics, Science, Modern Languages, Classics, History,
Geography, Economics, Music and Art.

These compulsory subjects may be taken at either Advanced or Ordinary Levels.

EXAMINATION IN PROFFESSIONAL PRACTICE

One of the requirements for registration as an Architect in Zimbabwe is to pass a written an oral
examination in professional practice as it applies in Zimbabwe. The examination is administered by the Institute
of Architects of Zimbabwe and approved by the Architects Council.

The written examination is of three hours’ duration and candidates are required to answer five questions under
the headings: Professional Conduct; Conditions of Engagement; Model Building By-Laws; Town Planning
Legislation and Contractual Procedure. The examination is an “open book” examination and candidates may
consult any of the literature mentioned below during the examination.

Following the written examination, candidates will present themselves for an oral examination at a time to be
fixed some days after the written paper. Candidates will be asked to qualify their answers where necessary and
anything else within the scope of professional practice, and are required to bring examples of their work. The oral
examination, which is an examination in its own right, carries the same marks as the written paper and the pass
mark for each is 60%.

The examination is based on the following reading –

Architects Act No. 35 of 1975
Architects (General) By-laws 1976 (RGN 296/76)
Architects (Amendment) By-laws 1980 (SI 333/80)

Which are obtainable from Dorking House

And,
Agreement and Schedule of Conditions of Building Contract (where Bills of Quantities form part of the contract)
Agreement and Schedule of Conditions of Building Contract (Lump Sum)

Which are obtainable from the Institutes offices.

The examination is held annually towards the end of each year, the fee for which should be confirmed with
the Institute. In special cases where it is shown that hardship would otherwise occur, the Council may, at its
discretion, set a special examination for which the fee should also be inquired from the Institute.

Application forms and past papers are available from the Institute’s offices.

ARCHITECTS’ YEARBOOK

GUIDELINES FOR REGISTRATION
REQUIREMENTS IN ZIMBABWE

1. Any person who wishes to perform the work of an Architect as a partner or principal in the private practice
in architecture is required to register in terms of the Architects Act 1975, of which copies are available from
Government Printers or the Government website.
