Foundations of Practice Webinar Mini-Series 2021 Poster

Architects are expected to be familiar with the current industry practice surrounding construction contracts. For instance, architects must review Requests for Proposals (RFPs) and decide if the project is a good fit, understand the terms of the contracts when hiring sub-consultants for project teams, prepare contracts and explain the terms to clients, and administer contracts on behalf of other parties and hold them accountable.

This webinar will conduct a high-level overview on contracts that all architects should be familiar with and examine the various types of contracts, their commonalities, differences, and what warrants using them.  Participants will learn to identify the elements architects should be familiar with to ensure a legal and binding contract.  Finally, this review will provide a fundamental understanding for newly practicing architects and emerging professionals as well as equip participants with contract sources for reference.

Learning Objectives:

At the conclusion of this session, participants will be able to:

  • Identify the different types of contracts.
  • Locate where to source pertinent contracts.
  • Determine the correct contract type.
  • Implement contracts at the appropriate stages.
