The AIA Trust Guide to Virtual Practice is a treasure-trove of invaluable pointers and considerations for this burgeoning approach to architectural practice. This overview looks at some of the many requirements and questions to consider when starting or working in a virtual practice.
What actually is a virtual practice and how does it differ from more traditional ones? What does the law require and what do you need to know about business structure, labor law and employee liability issues, and licensing requirements?
The guide discusses various obligations, commitments, and liabilities of a virtual practice – along with the many benefits. Practical considerations regarding infrastructure, logistics, communications, and management are some of the topics explored – and a checklist of many considerations is included.
