    Let me use this example to explain so you can understand:

    In a traditional project, the architect is responsible for coordination of the CLSEMP consultants of his own team, but these consultants also need to coordinate their portion of work with other architect’s consultants. The architect is looking at the overall picture and coordinating all the consultants.

    In your example, the owner hires his/her own consultants and separate contractors, so the owner is responsible for the coordination of the owner’s consultants’ and contractors’ work. The architect is just one of the owner’s consultant. However, the architect still has the obligation to coordinate his portion of the work with other owner’s consultants. The owner is looking at the overall picture and coordinate all consultants (including the architect) and contractors.
