Many construction projects result in allegations of insufficient design by the architect or engineer, or defective drawings and specifications, and the resulting finger-pointing and claims can be costly, stressful, and fatal to good business relationships.
But just how good does a given design have to be in order to be consistent with applicable contractual provisions and applicable caselaw?
The answers are found in the language of the owner-design professional agreement for professional services, and within an important concept called the Spearin Doctrine.
Join Kevin O'Beirne and Jerry Cavaluzzi to explore these concepts, discuss who decides when a design or its associated professional services are truly insufficient, and examine how these principles were applied in two recent, notable court decisions.
