SAIA Webinars


Aspects of the new SAIA Compendium of Practice Guidelines are presented with particular reference to: ‘How Projects Start’ This is a presentation of a grouping of documents selected as being part of an initial understanding of the necessary preparation by Consultants when planning for the first encounter with a Client on a new project.

This presentation describes the procedures involved for the architect to show the potential Client the extent of their responsibilities, and:–Why do you need me?

The law requires the employment of competent persons to be employed to oversee, with registered professional competence, all building developments. Effectively, this means that architects or project managers need to be employed as their Client’s agent to fulfill the objectives that have been set out and described as the overall intention, and specifics to be achieved in a new building project, or the adaptation, the provision for alterations and additions to an existing property. Key to the overall understanding, is the fact that the building delivery process usually takes a great deal of time, as there is considerable involvement of a large series of obstacles and approvals to be achieved.
