Supplemental architectural services can:

• help architects generate income
• increase the value of the firm through diversification
• help attract new clients or keep the firm involved with existing patrons
• be used as special projects for young professionals to nurture their development.

Each supplemental architectural service in this series includes bullet points on knowledge and skills, why clients need the deliverables, associated tasks, and the AIA Contract Document that can be used in conjunction with the service. This information is available through an essay and companion introductory presentation. The resources are formatted as publications (PDF) and presentations (PPT). Additionally, an overview “Defining Services” is provided. For suggestions on using this content, see A Guide to Planning a Roundtable Education Program on Supplemental Architectural Services.
