Course outline

Two vital steps to project success are communicating the client’s needs (in the brief) and communicating the detail of how those needs will be met (in specifications). The last two decades have seen great shifts in the responsibility of clients, consultants and builders for these key decisions. Shortcomings and shortcuts in these areas are regular contributors to defects and disputes.

Through case studies of claims, the legally qualified Risk Managers from informed by Planned Cover will discuss an architect’s duty of care when it comes to briefing and specifications, and look at ways to reduce the risks of errors and claims.
