I HATE architects!
What more needs to be said?My thinking is, it looks good on paper. Not sure how well it will work in the real world.
I handle that by pulling off this type of work to do more 'normal' work in between. I almost never arrive on a longer-term job to be dedicated to that job day after day, or even for 8 hours in the same day. I still mix in all the regular work with the longer term work. I find most of these goofy jobs have a great amount of "downtime" waiting for decisions to be made, waiting on other trades (because they're dealing with the same owner), and so fourth. It would be very rare to find me on the same job for more than two days in a row. That's how I juggle...I am good at this type of thing but if it would interfere with several other jobs and customers I would look closely at how it would negatively affect my company..
With a small company that is always an important question. I can make good money doing this but it delays other projets and regular service, upsetting regular long term customers. Which in the long run may cost you any money you may have made. I friend once told me you do 80-90% of your work for 10-20% of your customers, keep those 10-20% happy. If you can balance the extra PIA jobs with these regular customers than go for it.but if it would interfere with several other jobs and customers
