Very large or tall buildings are designed by structural engineers, usually working closely with architects. In general terms, the architect is most concerned with the appearance and setting of a finished building. The structural engineer, on the other hand, is responsible for making sure the building can be built and used safely and economically and will last a long time.
Some very specialised civil engineers may work on large and tall buildings, for example earthquake engineers, fire engineers and wind engineers. Structural engineers take a leading role in the construction of sports stadiums.
