Whatever the size of the architectural firm you own or for which you work, you will be able to put to good use the practical information on all aspects of organizing and running an architect's office gathered here. From choosing and procuring the right office location and hiring personnel through the ins and outs of scheduling, finance, getting clients, and allocating work to field representation and legal considerations, the author discusses what you need to know to successfully run your special types of business. A practicing architect and consultant for many years, he utilizes all he has learned from his own and others' experiences, plus what he had studied and acquired from conferences and seminars. One of the most helpful and unique chapters is called "A Day at the Office." it examines the work and time put in on a variety of projects by whichever office employees deal with them and the resulting costs of each. This shows you the average workload, costs, and time involved in a typical working day. It can be scaled up or down depending on the size of your operation. Another topic hard to find information on is construction. This book details the requirements of construction documents, the responsibilities of construction, and the field procedures used in construction. Invaluable to architects/engineers just starting out, this book is so complete and so full of practical business advice that even those in established firms, as well as students of architecture and engineering, can find helpful advice and procedures for smoothing out their day-toi-day organization.
