RE: Level of Detailing

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

Well put…


I guess the scenario I was alluding to is one where you work for the architect who works for

The owner and the owner doesn’t pay the arch and the arch is worried about you suing them

For fees in the meantime…until if or when HE ever gets paid.

Sometimes you have to listen to what you don’t hear. A prospective client that has concerns about your “suing over fees” is telling you something.

I agree (my office manager asks me why we don’t do this all the time)…

but the problem is that in the fairly close knit architectural

Community like we have in Chicago, by doing that, you quickly get

The rep as being “the guy who sues everybody over fees”
