Penza Bailey Architects will continue to manage the client’s project through construction.
First, CA services are focused on the administrative aspects of construction instead of design process (the reason that most Architects entered the profession). Second, design issues and, too often issues having little to do with design, surface and morph into construction defect litigation.
We see CA as a necessary, integral and even helpful part of the overall design process is much more likely to perform these duties effectively while minimizing claims risks associated with these tasks.
