In brief, our question is whether plans drawn up by an architect should have a standard so that they can be used by any reputable builder.
A reputable architect drew up plans for our house addition. Since then we've changed General Contractors and our new GC has some general questions about the plans (including the scale). The architect is claiming that he drew the plans up for our previous GC (whom he has worked with) and had he known we might not be using this person then he may have added other information/detail. He says we've put him in an uncomfortable position. This truly has come as a surprise to us as we'd assumed that his plans - which we've paid over $10K for - would be usable by anyone.
Can anyone shed any light on what we should - or should have - expected from the architect? Thanks!
