The AIA Project Delivery Knowledge Community (PD) promotes the architect’s leadership role in all project delivery methods by assembling and distributing knowledge and best practices for a variety of project delivery methods, e.g. design-build (DB), integrated project deliveries (IPD), and public-private partnerships (P3).
I do that frequently for firms that wish to work in new states. It requires a review of the law in each state in which you wish to work to make sure you comply on both the licensing and the corporate sides as they are all different it seems.
I have found the easiest way is to set up a new LLC or corporation that complies with the local licensing laws and then make it a wholly owned subsidiary of the parent company. That works in many states, but as noted, maybe not all because they are all different.
You really need legal advice, but it isn't a complicated process so the cost shouldn't be prohibitive.
