Happy Monday!

Good Afternoon!
We have officially moved out of the Beaubien House!  We will be moving into the new office in Mid-Town Detroit the first week of December.  During this time we will be answering phones and working but will not have a physical office and will be unable to offer pick-up documents.  We still can ship documents to you.  Also the AIAMI office is still without phone service.  The main number is being routed to a cell phone.  Please be patient if you go to voicemail - leave a message.  We will return all of the calls.  You can contact us by emailing [email protected] for general questions, [email protected] and [email protected] and we will return your email ASAP. Hopefully the phone will be restored by next week!
The new address is 4219 Woodward Avenue, Suite 205, Detroit, MI 48201.  The phone number will remain the same.  We will be up and running in the new space by our Holiday Open House on Thursday, December 10th.  Please mark your calendars!!
Have a great week and remember to  contact me  anytime.

Weekly Highlights
Some Key Things you Should Know about Practicing Architecture in Michigan
The following are excerpts from some the Michigan laws impacting the practice of architecture in our State. You should, of course, familiarize yourself with all the salient requirements and not rely solely on these limited excerpts. They are only offered here as a response to, and reference for, a number of important questions that are often raised by our members.
The Occupational Code (Public Act 299 of 1980) of the State of Michigan states in Article 6 Section 339.601 (1) A person shall not engage in or attempt to engage in the practice of an occupation regulated under this act or use a title designated in this act unless the person possesses a license or registration issued by the department for the occupation." Article 20 covers the majority of such requirements related to the licensing and practice of architects, professional engineers and professional surveyors in Michigan. Read more HERE.
