I don’t understand why 14 days for bidding and negotiation aren’t counted for the answer to the following question:
“An architect has agreed to a proposed schedule that allows for 15 days for schematic design, 15 days for design development, 30 days for construction documents, 14 days for bidding and negotiation, and 30 days for permitting. The owner will have one week for review after each of the design phases. All durations noted are in business days.
How many business days into the project should the architect expect to obtain the permit?”
The answer is 105 days. One week or five days for owner review is to be provided after SD, DD, and CD phases. SD+5+DD+5+CD+5+Permitting = 15+5+15+5+30+5+30 = 105 days.
Don’t we need to get a GC awarded before permitting?
