CASE #2 – An Agreement Between Client and Structural Engineer of Record for Professional Services

This agreement form may be used when the client, e.g. owner, contractor developer, etc., wishes to retain the Structural Engineer of Record directly. The contract contains an easy to understand matrix of services that will simplify the “what’s included and what’s not” questions in negotiations with a prospective client. This agreement may also be used with a client who is an architect when the architect-owner agreement is not an AIA agreement.

As of 2019, all CASE Sample Contract Agreements were legally reviewed by outside counsel and the following changes were made:

What’s New:
Termination provision
State-by-state drafting questions and considerations

What’s Updated:
Clarified insurance obligations
Modified indemnity provisions
Limitation of liability provisions
Dispute resolution provisions
***Updated in November 2021 to include a Force Majeure clause.
