Design Defects/Errors & Omissions

Regardless of project size, there is always the potential for a design error or omission.

A design professional’s potential exposure to a claim increases with the amount of responsibility the professional agrees to undertake from design development to construction administration. Liability may result in errors or omission in the construction documents or details or project specifications prepared by the design professional. Liability may also arise from construction administration services, such as performing inspections of the work, reviewing and responding to requests for information (RFIs), change order requests, review of shop drawings, and submittals, approval or denial of payment applications and scope changes. We have defended the designs and decisions of all design professionals including architects, landscape architects, golf course architects, consulting engineers, civil engineers, structural engineers, mechanical engineers, environmental engineers, land surveyors, professional planners, and home inspectors.
