Design-Build (D/B) continues to progress as the delivery method of choice for many public owners  federal, state and local on infrastructure projects. Those owners find attractive the ability to (a) contract on a fixed price basis with a design builder who is responsible for both design and construction and (b) transfer substantial risk  traditionally retained by the owner  to that design-builder.

Many Design Builders respond to Owner D/B RFPs with aggressive pricing proposal and sometimes unrealistic assumptions and expectations as to the details of (post-award) final design development details and construction cost.

What do these owner objectives and Design-Builder practices in DB procurement and contracting mean for the professional liability risk of consultants engaged as part of the team to the Design-Builder?

That question and its answer will be the focus of this Webinar.

Learning Objectives
How price and risk allocation terms of a prime D/B contract between the Owner and Design-Builder impact professional liability.
What are the principal areas of professional liability risk and claims for the Consulting Engineer in D/B?
What has been the professional liability claims experience for Consulting Engineers in D/B?
What are recommended contracting and other practices for Consulting Engineers to improve management of professional liability risk in D/B?
