Meeting Notice – February Lunch Seminar
Delegated Design: Closing the Circle on Liability and Risk
with guest speaker
Paul D. Gerber, CSC, CSI

Seminar Overview

The Consultant deals with Delegated Design on almost every project, but this term may be somewhat new in the industry in Canada. This happens when the Professional of Record (architect/engineer) delegates the completion of a component of their design to the Contractor (who then may pass this on to one of their Subcontractors). Typically this involves items that are affected by means & methods requirements or potentially cost or scheduling implications of the fabrication or installation. This is typically documented in the Contract Documents with the requirement of engineered Shop Drawings. Oh, that’s what he’s talking about? Common examples of Delegated Design include structural steel connections, support substructure for exterior cladding systems and attachment/support of curtain wall assemblies. But it’s more complicated than just asking for stamped Submittals. What information needs to be specified or detailed? Where do some Specifications stop short of “closing the circle” on design requirements and risk & liability? What needs to be provided to ensure the circle is closed? Paul will address these issues with real life examples and suggestions for helping to provide the information required by the Delegated Design Professional Engineer to complete his work, get the information you need to evaluate & accept Delegated Design Submittals and ensure no changes are needed because of them, and close the circle of closeout information needed to reduce risk & liability.
