Contributed by Frank Stasiowski, FAIA, excerpted and adapted from Architect’s Essentials to Winning Proposals


Firms that aim to stay profitable are generally more selective about the projects they choose to accept.

The checklist includes questions to help a firm assess a prospective client and a project’s viability, profit potential, and much more.
