Re: Re: My architect won’t listen to me.
Hutton, I presume they approved it in principle, and didn’t “rule it out” from the outset at pre-planning. As you probably already know, a pre-planning understanding doesn’t in any way mean a grant will be forthcoming.
I’m a tad flabbergasted at this fella’s total lack of professionalism. At the end of the day, he should know what pays the bills. It’s fine to suggest and prod clients but to completely depart from their wishes smacks of negligence, and downright idiocy. I can only presume he’s self employed and has no masters above him waiting for the fees?
I agree with Hutton and ciai. Perhaps give him one more chance, if he’ll do so without charge. If not, it may be time to have the ‘it’s not me, it’s you’ conversation.
