Before commencing work with your Architect, it’s important to establish a Contract. There is no one-size-fits-all contract, but there are several important bases to cover AND pitfalls to avoid. A good place to start is with an AIA Contract. It is always best to seek the guidance of an attorney to choose the best agreement and make edits. Make sure your contract covers the basics, your architect’s responsibilities, a project schedule, and a few more miscellaneous items. Watch and learn what's most important to include in your contract with the architect. Remember, no one else does what architects do so well: design beautiful homes that work. CRAN is the custom residential architects’ network, a knowledge community of the AIA. We develop information that benefits residential architects and clients alike.
