Signing & Sealing Documents

    Hi Dana, 

    The problem with answer C is that it doesn't mention that the architect was responsible for the arch drawings the shop drawings are intended for.  And E is also not a correct choice because the architect hasn't worked on those cds either.  If the colleague is going to be gone for several months (or permanently), let's say, then the other architect could review the plans, make any edits necessary, and then stamp them.  We cannot go around stamping drawings that were not produced under our direction.

    And F is correct, because the architect directed the work of the junior architects.  So the architect designed the building, and then had their staff produce the cds.  That's ok.

    I agree the correct answers are B, D & F.  The scenarios where the architect directed the work and then stamped the drawings are the correct choices.

    Hope this helps!

    The issue with C is that shop drawings would come in the form of a submittal from the fabricator, and therefore not be "intended to be incorporated into the architect of record’s technical submissions."

    The problem with E is that the colleague's work would not be "incorporated...into the architect of record’s own technical submissions." She'd simply be stamping drawings as a matter of convenience for the colleague.

    B, D, & F are the correct answers, as the drawings were prepared under the architect's responsible control in all circumstances.
