Who we are

The Construction Contract Administration Knowledge Community (CCA) has been established to help our members better understand the issues, actions and resultant impact of the decisions required in this often neglected part of Project Delivery. It is our goal to provide clear answers to issues of concern to the Institute’s membership and share case studies and best practices. We further hope to provide guidance and direction in developing guidelines for new and evolving approaches to Project Delivery as well as guidance in the continuing education of our emerging young professionals.

Design Architect is eliminated during the construction

  • 1.  Design Architect is eliminated during the construction

    Posted 01-08-2024 09:53 AM

    I've come across projects where an Architect was responsible for the design, yet the Owner chose not to engage an Architect during construction for construction administration, for tasks like response to RFIs, submittal/shop drawing reviews. The Owner has excluded Architect involvement during construction.


    According to AIA Form A201, it is recommended that projects designed by an Architect should be administered by an Architect, either the original designer or another qualified professional What are your thoughts on this matter?

    Thank you.
