To Outsource or not to Outsource?

7 August 2015

With tight fees and rising staffing costs it is getting harder to make a reasonable profit. Is outsourcing documentation work the way to go? ACA – WA’s August seminar takes a look.

Join ACA – WA for a real world discussion with an experienced panel including the leaders of two of Perth’s largest architectural firms and key representatives of the agencies that provide outsourcing services.

The discussion will consider the following questions:

  • What type and scale of project is suited to outsourcing to architectural support bureaus?
  • Are there real cost benefits?
  • At what stage is it appropriate to outsource our work?
  • What are the pitfalls?

The Panel

Greg Howlett, Cox Howlett and Bailey Woodland
Peter Lee, Hassell
Joshua Ridley, Ridley
Ali Noble, Parametric

Facilitated by Richard Young, ACA – WA President. 



5:00pm for a 5:30pm (sharp) start until 7pm
