Description:

The seminar will commence with a refresher and overview on the key principles of modern professional liability. The main focus of the seminar is then devoted to applications of these principles to specific areas of architectural practice. Practical areas that will be addressed include:

  • Use of letters of intent and the giving of advice on forms of contract and procurement strategies,
  • Design liability under traditional employer design and design and build models,
  • Liability to client and to third parties by collateral warranty and under the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act,
