There are many small agencies who recruit freshers out of B.Arch. (Building Construction & Tech.) colleges and give them good exposure to Building Construction Technology projects. It is advisable to gain work exposure this way for atleast couple of years and then a person can become an independent architect (in Building Construction & Tech.) and form his/her own team. The pay package for a construction architect fresher starts from around Rs.1 lakh per annum, and increases gradually over a period of time. An independent architect specialized in Building Construction & Technology can earn more than Rs.6 lakh per annum by doing multiple Construction projects in a year.
Because of the ever increasing population of India, there will always be a high demand for real estate. So, construction architects will always find good jobs and projects.
