By Bill Schmalz, FAIA, and Yu-Ngok Lo, AIA
By Bill Schmalz, FAIA, and Yu-Ngok Lo, AIAMost architects know that a substitution, an RFI, and a submittal are distinct things, each with its own relationship to the owner-contractor agreement.

Found in Library: Construction Contract Administration
By Michael Plottel, AIAThe complexity of modern buildings often leaves owners figuratively at sea. “Did we really get everything we paid for?” and “How do we operate this thing?” are two questions that often linger long after the ribbon cutting. The answers “Yes, we did” and “Yes, we can” start with...

I am not sure what all the hubbub about the new rule is about. It seems to me if we are following the rules as they currently exist there is very little substantive change. In our firm of 100 we have one person who is effected by the rule and that situation was easily rectified. Our philosophy on...

Ladd Ehlinger stated, "The writers of software have contempt for their customers . . ." I have felt this same way about AutoDesk for about 15 years. In particular, with REVIT, I realize AutoCad bought this product and did not develop it, but it is very frustrating that one cannot use REVIT by relying...

It isn't very scientific to string three events together and turn them into a natural law. However, recent so called "natural disasters" in the US should provoke architects, planners and engineers to ponder the issues and ask serious questions with increasing urgency.

We first computerized our drawings in 1981. There were no databases that one could buy, or manufacturer drawings that one could download and insert, as there was no internet at that time. So we had to create and en tire data base. If we needed a door, we created all doors. If we needed a window, we...
