    That is what I thought considering the fact that there are other factors related to code that the architect has to be aware of to determine that a project is substantially complete, but I have seen ARE practice exams with questions that considers the GC as the one who is responsible for determining substantial completion.

    The GC is supposed to check the project and initially identify why they think the job is substantially complete.  After doing so, they call us and say "OK, I'm ready for you to come out and do your punch list."  However, at the end of the day, WE (the architect) are absolutely the ones who determine substantial completion, and we issue an AIA form as well certifying it. 

    It's possible that those practice exams are talking about the GC's role in the initial determination, but it's definitely not official until we say it is.
