Professor Anthony Lavers examines the duties and responsibilities of the architect in contract administration and in the wider role of managing the project, analysing cases both as sources of lessons to be learned from errors made and also as examples of good practice.

  • Management of liability risk arising from contract administration
  • Can architects be expected to supervise construction?
  • Decision making in contract administration - the duty to hold the scales fairly
  • Potential liability for certification - how far does it extend?
  • Duties of the project manager?
