Design professionals need to understand the limits of deferred design, but more than that, they must understand the roles and responsibilities of various parties to a construction contract. The words ‘deferred design’ have become a trend within document preparation and contract delivery. It is a concept that has been around for decades and used successfully to address design solutions that cannot be finalized during the production of construction drawings and specifications. More recently ‘deferred design’ has contributed to a decline in the quality of construction documentation and fears of unreasonable transference of design responsibility and liability between the various contributors providing engineered solutions.
This webinar will review the history of documentation, professional responsibility, constructor's concerns, concerns from industry, key concepts, responsibility pathways and alternative solutions.
Continuing education certificates will be issued for this session as it will count for one structured learning hour.
