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.

The call for volunteer terms starting in January 2024 is now open! Learn more about joining the CCA leadership group, or learn about other volunteer opportunities across the organization.

The Lost Art of Dimensioning

By Bill Schmalz, FAIA, CSI, LEED AP

Today’s architectural interns don’t have it easy. Compared to when I entered the profession, they have to know a lot more stuff—and a lot of different kinds of stuff. For one thing, they have to learn 40 years of architectural history that I didn’t. And they have to know about accessible design, sustainable design, and resilient design—all of which we should have been paying attention to 40 years ago but mostly weren’t. And then there’s the technology. Just the number of software programs that interns need to master is daunting. With all this additional knowledge they need, it’s understandable that a few things that used to be considered basic skills might fall into a crack in the Sidewalk of Experience. Things such as dimensioning.
