    Situation: An Architect specifies a particular material for a project that will be sourced from a foreign supplier. Everything is going as scheduled until the Contractor reports to the Client that he will not be able to finish the project as scheduled since the material needed and to be supplied by the foreign supplier is still not at the job site and delivery has been apparently delayed. There is an upcoming event and the building will not be ready in time for the scheduled activity. It will be cancelled and the Client is very unhappy due to the projected huge financial loss. Whose fault is it?

    • D.

      80%

    Correct Answer
    B. 75%
    Explanation
    The correct answer is 75%. In a situation where three siblings form their own architectural firm, the architectural composition of the corporation should ideally be higher to reflect the expertise of the Architect sibling. With the Architect sibling being the primary professional in the field, it is reasonable to allocate a higher percentage to their role in the firm. A 75% architectural composition ensures that the Architect sibling has a significant influence and decision-making power in the company.

      DTI

    • D.

      BIR

    Correct Answer
    B. City Hall
    Explanation
    If someone wants to apply for a business permit, they should go to City Hall. City Hall is typically the government building where local administrative and regulatory functions are carried out, including the issuance of business permits. The SEC (Securities and Exchange Commission) is responsible for regulating and supervising the corporate sector, DTI (Department of Trade and Industry) deals with trade and industry-related matters, and BIR (Bureau of Internal Revenue) handles taxation. However, for obtaining a business permit, City Hall is the appropriate place to visit.

    Situation: Ana wants to build a rest house in her lot at Tagaytay. She talked with her friend, Arch. A, about the project. Ana's daughter also recommended Interior Designer B to her mom. However, while browsing a magazine, she learned about Architect C, who also happens to be an Interior Designer at the same time. A. What is the best method for her to select the designers?

    • C.

      Comparative Selection

    • D.

      None of the choices

    Correct Answer
    C. Comparative Selection

This way, she can ensure that she chooses the most suitable designer for her rest house project based on their skills and expertise. Selecting Architect A just because they are a friend may not guarantee the best results, and a design competition may not provide a comprehensive evaluation of the designers' abilities.

    Rate this question:

  • 14.

    • A.

      She can get a discount on the services

      She can best interpret the Architectural Drawings for the Interior

    • C.

      It's not best to choose Architect C since you don't know her

    Correct Answer
    B. She can best interpret the Architectural Drawings for the Interior
    Explanation
    Architect C is the best choice because she has the ability to accurately interpret the architectural drawings for the interior. This implies that she has the necessary skills and expertise to understand the plans and bring them to life in the most effective way. This is a crucial aspect when selecting an architect as it ensures that the final design will align with the client's vision and requirements. The discount on services mentioned in the other option is not relevant to the question and does not provide any indication of the architect's ability or suitability for the job.

    Rate this question:

  • 17. 

    B. What can be done to remedy the problem?

    Correct Answer

This means that if there is a reciprocity agreement, the individual may be able to transfer their license from the Philippines to New York without having to take the local examination. However, if there is no reciprocity agreement, they will need to pass the local examination in order to practice as an architect in New York.

      Cost Method

    • B.

    B. Percentage of Construction Cost
    Explanation
    When the owner continuously makes changes to a construction project, the most suitable method of compensation would be the "Percentage of Construction Cost." This method ensures that the owner is compensated based on the total cost of the project, taking into account any changes or modifications made along the way. By using a percentage of the construction cost, it allows for a fair and transparent way of determining the owner's compensation, as it directly correlates with the scope and scale of the changes made.

    Mr. Juan Makatigbak commissioned you for a restaurant project last year. Due to the success of the restaurant, he wants you to do a 2nd restaurant using the same design, what would be your fee?

    • A.

      60% of basic fee

    • B.

      30% of basic fee

    • C.

      80% of basic fee

    • D.

      40% of basic fee

    Correct Answer
    C. 80% of basic fee
    Explanation
    The correct answer is 80% of the basic fee. This means that the fee for the second restaurant project will be 80% of the fee charged for the first restaurant project. This makes sense because the second project is using the same design, so there may be some cost savings and efficiencies in the design process. Therefore, it is reasonable to charge a slightly lower fee for the second project compared to the first one.

    What among the following should the Architect's fee NOT be based?

    • A.

      Project Construction Cost

    • B.

      Client's Profile Directory

    • C.

      Contractor's Fee

    • D.

      None

    Correct Answer
    B. Client's Profile Directory
    Explanation
    The architect's fee should not be based on the client's profile directory. The client's profile directory typically includes information about their background, qualifications, and experience. However, this information is not directly related to the project's construction cost or the contractor's fee. The architect's fee should be determined based on the scope of work, complexity of the project, and the architect's expertise and experience, rather than the client's profile directory.

    • C.

    • D.

The model is not directly related to the construction or management of the project, so it is not the responsibility of the contractor, project manager, or owner to pay for it.

    • A.

      The architect should pay because it is his responsibility to make his client understand his proposal

    • B.

      Contractor

    • C.

      Project Manager

    • D.

      The owner should pay because she requested it

    Correct Answer
    A. The architect should pay because it is his responsibility to make his client understand his proposal
    Explanation
    The architect should pay for the miniature model because it is his responsibility to effectively communicate and present his design concept to his client. If the client is unable to understand the complex design through traditional perspective methods, it is the architect's duty to find alternative ways to convey the information. By creating a miniature model, the architect can provide a tangible representation of the project, making it easier for the client to visualize and comprehend the design. Therefore, it is the architect's responsibility to cover the cost of the model in order to fulfill his obligation to the client.

This method also provides transparency and allows for flexibility, as the architect's fee can be adjusted based on any changes or modifications to the project scope or budget.
