    Love the podcast series. I found this one particularly interesting. It is sometime difficult to sell a client of the value of complete architectural services from programming through construction administration. And, the importance of getting the contractor on board early. They only realize that importance after it is too late. Saving money on the front end could cost an owner big on the back end and over time.
