("DAPE") to seek legislative clarification. We still encourage such action and note that a bill has passed the Senate but is yet to be considered in the House of Representatives. Fourth, we have considered all of the material sent to us by both DAPE and the Board. Unfortunately, most of it is of little assistance as the issue before us is the interpretation of the definitions of the practice of architecture and the practice of engineering as defined by the Delaware statutes.1
1 Twenty-four Del. C. § 302(5) states:
"Practice of architecture" shall mean the rendering or offering to render those services, hereinafter described, in connection with the design and construction of a structure or group of structures which have as their principal purpose human habitation or use, and the utilization of space within and surrounding such structures; the services referred to include planning, preparing studies, designs, drawings and specifications and furnishing administration of construction contracts.
Twenty-four Del. C. § 2803(7) states:
"Practice of engineering" or "to practice engineering" or "practice engineering" includes any professional service performed for the general public such as consultation, investigation, evaluation, planning, design or responsible supervision of construction or operation in connection with any public or private utilities, structures, buildings, machines, equipment, processes, works or projects wherein the public welfare or the safeguarding of life, health or property is concerned or involved when such professional service requires the application of engineering principles and data, but it does not include the work ordinarily performed by persons who operate or maintain machinery or equipment, neither does it include engineering services performed by an employee of a firm or corporation that does not offer professional engineering services to the general public.
