Instructor Mike Newman will discuss issues related to office standards, development of project teams and overall project control of client, fee and risk management.

When you are done with this course, you will have a thorough understanding of the content covered in the ARE 5.0 Project Management Exam including quality control, project team configuration and project scheduling.

I'm Matt Dumich from Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture in Chicago, where I'm a project manager and senior architect working on arts and cultural projects and master plans. When you're really negotiating your agreement, you often will use benchmark documents from a previous project to demonstrate the level of detail that you would typically provide. There are all checklists through AIA that lists kind of typical deliverables by phase which are helpful reference and actually in some contracts, we've attached them as appendices to the agreement to show this is really a deliverables list that's been blessed by the AIA as kind of an industry standard level of development for a project.

And really coming to that understanding for how much is done is critical. We have a certain understanding of what CDs are, what level of detail CDs are in North America which is different if you're working in Europe or the Middle East or in China. And so it's critical to sort that out and often bring those samples to review with the client what level your CDs are, communicate that.

Now that conversation is also important as it relates to BIM models and we work in Revit and the clients have been asking us to do more and more level of detail in our BIM models and now there's lots of documentation through AIA and other sources to really identify specifically to what level of detail all of the model elements will be in your model because now clients and contractors are starting to use those models.

So it's not just the paper documents now, it's also the digital information or digital models as well.
