On Wednesday, February 18, an enthusiastic crowd filled Boston Design Center's 342 Club for B/A/D Talks. Despite one of the most challenging winters ever...we had a full house!

This evening's talk, Getting Paid, examined various pricing models and explored how different approaches might influence client relations and the design process.

Our (amazingly!) skilled moderator, Kyle Hoepner, Editor-in-Chief, New England Home, was joined by panelists Jeremiah Eck, Eck | MacNeely Architects, Inc., and Heather Wells, Heather Wells Inc. (To see Heather's work in February's Architectural Digest, click here.) Heather and Jeremiah openly shared their pricing models and what they've learned over the years. It was clear they and others who contributed ideas were sincerely trying to balance fairness to the client with supporting their companies.

Great audience participation!
