Re: Re: My architect won’t listen to me.
I wouldnt be too focused on the posters semantics… most clients would use the same phrasing.
it is most certainly not arguing over semantics. If a client asked me to agree to a fee on grant of planning I’d tell them where to go
This should be reasonably simple to clear up. When you engaged this architect, after having an initial consultation, after discussing the project and what you expected and having agreed fees – all as per standard advice on the RIAI website – you both sat down and agreed on the wording of the letter of appointment and both signed up to this accordingly. This will be the first thing looked at in any arbitration situation. Otherwise, of course, it’s your word against his. What does your appointment agreement say?
