About the Book

Because many aspects of the work done by design professionals and construction managers in a construction project overlaps, lawyers often encounter difficulties in assigning tasks and assessing liability. In addition, the rapid growth and evolution of the field of construction management adds urgency in the need for a formal analysis of this topic. Design Professional and Construction Manager Law provides an in-depth and much-needed resource that addresses the inherent difficulties in assigning the scope and liability of the work done by both professions.

Written by a team of experienced construction lawyers, Design Professional and Construction Manager Law provides practical knowledge concerning the problems, needs, risks, rewards, duties, and liabilities of both design professionals and construction managers. The first part of the book provides a core set of parallel chapters that describe and analyze the fundamental legal responsibilities of design professionals and construction managers. These individual chapters address the following topics separately for both professions:
  • State regulation

  • Contractual responsibilities

  • Potential liability in tort

  • Roles in design-build projects
The balance of the book covers important topics that are of common interest to both design professionals and construction managers yet do not require discrete analysis differentiated by profession. These topics are:
  • Professional liability insurance

  • Subcontractor arrangements

  • Damages and remedies

  • Alternative dispute resolution

  • Special litigation topics
In addition, a special chapter addresses the intellectual property rights of design professionals in their work products.

The construction industry is going through many critical changes. Due to the foresight of the editors and authors of Design Professional and Construction Manager Law, this book is an especially timely and authoritative examination of the developing concepts and principles applicable to the liability of construction managers, an increasingly important professional discipline within the construction industry.
