Is construction admin. an add service?

Is construction administration an additional service? I’m confused because I thought CA was an add service, yet the architect reviewing submittals is included under basic services…

Construction phase administration is a basic service according to the AIA B101 - see article 3.6. It’s in the architect’s best interest to be involved during construction - the architect can add value for the client by evaluating if the work is in accordance with the contract documents.

Thank you for the response! So answering RFIs and submittals would fall under basic services?

yes, absolutely!
