The Architect
The definitive resource for designer-led projects

The Architect's Guide to Design-Build Services offers authoritative knowledge and industry insight to architects considering entry into the burgeoning practice of design-build project delivery. Written by architects and other professionals with expertise in risk management, law, ethics, finance, and contracts, this instructive guide addresses the roles architects can assume during a design-build project, including leading the project, acting as subcontractor, and forming a joint venture with a contractor.

Developed by the AIA Design-Build Professional Interest Area, this book offers the real-world expertise of thirty industry leaders from the United States, Canada, and Mexico, who share their experience and know-how on such topics as:

  • Starting out in design-build
  • Risks and rewards of design-build delivery
  • Succeeding in a design-build practice
  • Design-build education
  • Essential practice information
  • Ethics and licensing laws

State laws regulating both architects and contractors are summarized to help busy firms bring design-build projects through to successful completion in a variety of jurisdictions.

The Architect's Guide to Design-Build Services is the most complete, definitive resource for architects, contractors, and attorneys involved in designer-led projects.
