The Multi-Client — Is Your Architect Faithful?

You did it! You found your architect and (s)he is all yours. Does hiring your architect and paying your initial deposit ensure a faithful exchange or does your architect have competing interests? Once you hire the architect, (s)he immediately earns four clients and accepts obligations that extend beyond your desires. Is this a conflict of interest? Is your architect loyal? Since you paid the architect, (s)he should be working for you, but also works for these 3rd party tag-a-longs; the State, the Code and the Contractor. read more →

You Need an Architect When…

I’ve heard every raging battle about whether you need an architect or a designer. An architect is more experienced, but a designer costs less. An architect sees the big picture, but a designer has real-world experience. An architect organizes multiple design disciplines, but a designer is fast. An architect is busy, but a designer is easier to find. An architect is creative, but a designer is practical. And the list continues endlessly, but I say “Stop the madness”. Quite simply, you have to pick the right professional or designer for your specific project. It’s deciding who or what you want, but sometimes the law requires an architect for projects of a certain size or scope and you need to know which ones to keep yourself safe and the designer out of trouble. read more →

What are we paying for?

What are we paying for? You’re paying for your architect’s time, advice and expertise. Most people think they are buying documents, but the documents are the tools your architect uses to communicate your expectations to your builder and what you’re really paying for is what it takes to put them together.
