In traditional practice, architects generally work for a client, contractors do construction and someone else sells the finished building or development. But what if you, as the architect, took full control of the process and became the developer?
Any architect who’s had to learn building information modeling (BIM) or worked on teams that use it, recognizes that much has changed from the way we practiced just a few short years ago. Likewise, architects on teams using the integrated project delivery method (IPD) or any of its similar hybrid approaches, realize that old ways of practice are no longer effective. We may feel like we have a great deal to learn, and for some of us, as though we are being asked to start over. Here to take a little bit of that pain away is Randy Deutsch, AIA, LEED AP.
