INVESTIGATIVE REPORT

 

Ms. Peel presented the investigative report and explained the prosecutorial assignments for boards.

 

For Board Determination:

 

I-ARC-2010-22 and I-ARC-2010-23 C provided documentation showing that Rs, who are not licensed architects, provided architectural services for an apartment 4-plex.  In response to a letter from IBOL, Rs stated that on occasion the company has provided “limited planning and drafting services at the client’s request for specific projects.”  Rs stated that it was their understanding, “subject to correction,” that “basic drafting services do not constitute the practice of architecture services.”  Rs stated that Rs provided revisions to the 4-plex drawings and because the 4-plex is located in a jurisdiction that does not require review of building plans or permits, Rs assumed that the company had complied with all applicable requirements.  Rs stated that they learned after the project was completed that a 4-plex “crosses the line” and Idaho law required a licensed architect be engaged.  Rs stated that the company “did not attempt to provide, and did not charge for, the scope which defines architectural services.”  IBOL recommends that the Board authorize closure with a warning letter to Rs, advising Rs that any further reports of unlicensed practice will be forwarded to the local county prosecutor.

 

Mr. Jensen and Ms. Servick recused themselves from any discussion or action.

 

Case number I-ARC-2010-22 and I-ARC-2010-23:  Following review, it was moved by Mr. Rockwell to accept the Bureau’s recommendation for closure with a warning letter. Seconded by Mr. Reese, motion carried.

 

The Board thanked the Bureau and its staff for the work that it does to support the Board.

Mr. Tomlinson addressed the Board regarding projects he has been involved with since signing the final order and presented certificates of completion for his continuing education. The Board stated that it appreciates the diligence and professionalism.

 

It was moved by Mr. Jensen to accept the report and add it to Mr. Tomlinson’s file. Seconded by Mr. Reese, motion carried.

 

The Board reviewed the to do list.

 

Mr. Turney stated that he is still working on summarizing the research he has been doing on firm registration and on defining electronic seals in other jurisdictions. The Board tabled the to do items until the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards (NCARB) model law is available.

 

NEW BUSINESS

 

The Board discussed the possibility of creating an Idaho Architectural Examiners Newsletter. Ms. Cory explained that the Bureau now has the capability of mass e-mailing information to all Idaho licensed Architectural Examiners. This could be more cost effective. Ms. Cory also stated that there are different ways that the Bureau could help in adding information to the Board’s website, for example a frequently asked questions link.
