This 90-minute panel discussion, moderated by Mark Cavagnero, FAIA, focuses on how small firms can benefit from teaming with other small firms. The panelists, each from small architectural firms that have successfully navigated the ambitious journey of partnering with other small firms, discuss:

  • How to become more viable for projects by partnering with other small firms
  • How partnering can help your firm diversify its services, project types and geographic reach
  • How to present your team to prospective clients and communicate the value proposition
  • Why developing a familiarity and clarifying your roles and responsibilities are essential when partnering with other firms.

This program is part of the Growing a Small Firm series, created by AIA San Francisco and Mark Cavagnero, FAIA, designed to help architects and allied professionals who have recently branched out on their own, have a growing firm or are considering starting their own business. These best practice lectures bring together leading architects, contractors, engineers, and other design professionals for evenings of focused conversation and invaluable insight.
