Hiring An Architect

Scope of Services

Architects can provide the following:

  • Preliminary services: Advice on choosing a building site (or measure existing building.)
  • Programming: A written description of your needs, which is used as the basis for design.
  • Schematic design: Sketches of various alternate schemes that will satisfy your program. After receiving your comments, a single scheme is developed.
  • Design development: Drawings, outline specifications, and estimates that further describe the size and character of the project.
  • Contract documents: Working drawings and specifications describe the work in detail. They are used for competitive bidding and for construction of the building.
  • Bidding: Help in finding qualified bidders who are interested in building your project.
  • Contract administration: Site visits from time to time to assist the contractor with interpretation of the contract documents and to verify that the work conforms to the documents. The Architect will also certify payments earned by the contractor.
