The Diary of an Anonymous Architect #1


All this would fall under work stage K for which the client declined to employ the architect. There is no JCT contract and the terms of any contract between the client and the joiner are not stated. The architect would be extremely unwise to get involved without establishing the terms of agreement between the two parties. It appears that a good number of hours have been spent by the architect sorting this out yet there is no mention of the client being charged for the hours spent providing this additional service. If the architect is not charging then he/she is underselling the profession. It's bad enough trying to get a reasonable fee for our services without having to compete with others in the profession who are prepared to work for nothing.
