This program will discuss the risks design professionals face in connection with construction projects involving closely adjoining or attached properties. It will be presented from both the legal and engineering perspective. In connection with the former perspective, the program will discuss basic theories of liability and how to defend against them and the pre-construction protections design professionals can legally take. In connection with the latter perspective, the program will discuss basic engineering solutions to common place problems and how design professionals can protect themselves from a professional angle prior to and during construction.
