Architects engaged as secondary or subconsultants

On complex and large projects, architects are often engaged as a secondary or subconsultant. For example on major civil or landscape projects with a smaller architectural component or where a project manager engages the architect for specific services.

In such circumstances, the scope of the service to be provided must be clearly defined. It is equally important to establish who will provide the services that the architect would normally provide, for example coordination of documents.
