    Explanation
    During the Pre-Construction phase of the project, the role of the project manager is to recommend the early purchase of equipment and materials that require a long lead time for procurement and delivery. This is done to ensure expediency and prevent delays in the construction process. By identifying and procuring these items early on, the project manager can help to streamline the project timeline and ensure that the necessary resources are available when needed.

    B. Economic analysis/project feasibility
    Explanation
    The activity of economic analysis/project feasibility is not within the scope of project management because it involves assessing the financial viability and potential profitability of a project. This task typically falls under the domain of business or financial analysts, rather than project managers who are primarily responsible for planning, organizing, and controlling the execution of a project. While project managers may consider the financial aspects of a project, such as budgeting and cost control, they do not typically perform detailed economic analyses or feasibility studies.

    Pre-design is the phase in the Architect services where space/management studies are conducted. During this phase, the architect analyzes the client's needs, budget, and site conditions to develop a preliminary design concept. This includes conducting space and management studies to understand the spatial requirements and functional needs of the project. Therefore, pre-design is the correct answer as it encompasses the activities related to space/management studies in Architect services.

  • 6. 

    What is the general basis of the Architect’s minimum basic fee?

    • A.

      Architect’s professional standing in the community

    D. Project construction cost
    Explanation
    The general basis of the Architect's minimum basic fee is the project construction cost. This means that the fee charged by the architect is determined by the total cost of the construction project. The higher the construction cost, the higher the architect's fee will be. This is because larger and more complex projects require more time, effort, and expertise from the architect. Therefore, the project construction cost is used as a basis to ensure that the architect is adequately compensated for their services.

    Explanation
    It is unethical for an architect to offer free preliminary sketches without the benefit of an agreement for legitimate compensation.

    C. Structure collapse due to defects in plans/specification
    Explanation
    Under the Civil Code, an Architect or Engineer can be held liable for damages within fifteen years after project completion if the structure collapses due to defects in the plans or specifications. This means that if the plans or specifications provided by the Architect or Engineer are flawed or contain errors, and these flaws or errors result in the collapse of the structure, they can be held responsible for any damages that occur as a result.

This phase involves gathering information about potential sites, analyzing their suitability for the project, and making recommendations based on factors such as zoning regulations, accessibility, and environmental impact. This step is crucial in determining the feasibility and success of the project before moving on to the subsequent design phases.

Post-construction services typically involve activities related to assessing the performance and functionality of the constructed building or facility. This includes post-construction evaluation, building/ground administration, and building/equipment maintenance. Real property evaluation, on the other hand, typically refers to the assessment of the value or condition of a property for purposes such as sale or insurance, and is not directly related to the architect's role in post-construction services.

This phase involves the detailed documentation of the design, including technical specifications, drawings, and other necessary information that will be used for the construction of the project. These documents serve as a legally binding contract between the client and the contractor, outlining the scope of work, materials to be used, and construction methods to be followed.
