I have a conflict of answers.
in the amber book the question states:
"AIA Document B101 (owner-architect agreement) obliges the architect to obtain an estimated cost of the project?
A. after SD
B. After CD
C. After DD
D. After all three
the answer is (D) after all three
in the black spectacles youtube (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zDaLGCk8ouw) page, the last question is
"when does an architect with a typical contract perform a cost estimate?"
a. at the end of each phase of design (SD, DD, CD)
b.at the beginning of the project set the scale, and ten again after the CD phase to start off construction
c. at the beginning of the project, and at the end of Schematic Design and Design Development
d. an architect never performs a cost estimate.
the answer is C. at the beginning of the project, and at the end of schematic design and design development.
so which is the correct answer? does the architect do a cost estimate after all phases, including after the CD phase? or only SD and DD phase?
