Architecture and the science of buildings: Themba provide the expertise and experience required for the analysis and control of the physical phenomena affecting buildings and architecture. This encompasses the detailed analysis of building geometry, applied loads, materials and building envelope systems and includes environmental control, fire protection, sound control, and day lighting.

Buildings design is a response to naturally occurring physical phenomenon such as: the weather (sun, wind, rain, temperature, and humidity), subterranean conditions, the characteristics of human physiology (comfort, sensory reaction, sensitivity etc.), energy consumption, environmental control, building maintenance considerations, longevity/sustainability, and occupant comfort and health.

In addition to Architecture, building design requires the skills of Structural Engineers, Civil Engineers, Geotechnical Engineers, Mechanical and Electrical Engineers, Acoustic Engineers,
Fire Engineers, Quantity Surveyors and Cost Consultants and Project Managers.
