Summary of the Agreement

The PAC Model Agreement for Architectural Services is an agreement between the Client (the Party that wishes to commission the architectural services, known as the ‘Services’) and the Architect/Consultant (the person or firm performing the Services). 

The PAC Model Agreement for Architectural Services (“The Agreement”) comprises of three (3) Parts with equal legal value, which are the Schedule of Services, General Conditions and the Minimum Indicative Fees.

Part 1 Schedule of Services

The Schedule of Services is used to define the Services to be performed by the Architect/Consultant.

Specific services normally provided by the Architect. These services progress through three work-stages. The sequence of work stages may be varied or two or more work stages may be combined to suit the particular circumstances.

  • Work stage A: Brief and Concept Design
  • Work stage B: Spatial Coordination and Technical Design
  • Work stage C: Construction and Handover

Part 2 General Conditions

The General Conditions set out the terms, the rights and obligations of the Parties.

Part 3 Minimum Indicative Fees

A sample of Agreement (Particular Conditions) is included with the document for information. It is published separately.

The client and the architect should discuss the architect’s appointment and agree in writing the services, conditions and fee basis. These should be stated in the Agreement between client and architect; alternatively, they should be stated in a letter of appointment.
