How can I rephrase this sentence correctly? :P

See example:

By Knowing how to coordinate with others to be sure to get the building finished in time, Architects will need leadership capabilities to be in command of the construction.

First, you need to understand capitalization.  "Knowing" and "Architects" are not proper nouns and should not be capitalized.  Here's a page with a good outline of the capitalization rules:


Coordinating with others, taking command, and meeting deadlines are all types of leadership skills.  I'm not sure what the point of the sentence is supposed to be except that architects need leadership skills.  Perhaps you are trying to explain what those skills are. 


In the US, when a building is constructed, only one architect signs off on the project.  When talking about a specific building (the building) you should make architect singular.  If you are talking about architects and buildings in general, then you can either make building plural or use "a" as the article.
