Communication Tips For Architects

When it comes to making sure that the contractor-architect relationship is operating as smoothly as possible, one of the most important factors is keeping an open line of communication between both parties. Issues will often arise on the job site, and it’s essential that everyone is on the same page and ready to adjust to any problems thrown their way. With that in mind, here are a few tips to help streamline the communication between contractors & architects on the job site!

Team First Approach

First off, always remember that the team comes first. Instead of letting egos get in the way of the project, ensure that everyone remembers what they’re trying to accomplish, and that everyone is working together towards a common goal. Keeping a team first approach is key to ensuring the success of the project.

Schedule Weekly Meetings

If keeping everyone informed about the project turns out to be a difficult task, it is best to set up weekly meetings where the owner, contractor, and architect can all sit down and discuss the progress, as well as any hiccups, ensuring that any problems are quickly addressed, and solutions can be agreed upon as a team!

Phone Calls & Emails

When you’re able to have an in-person meeting, or even just a phone call, follow-up with all parties after the meeting with a written recap of what was discussed to ensure that everyone remembers any solutions, issue, or anything else that came up during the conversation. This will help to keep everyone on track and ensure nothing slips through the cracks!
