Shop drawings are an integral part of the construction process and present unique legal challenges. Design professionals are generally responsible for plans and specifications, while contractors are responsible for the means and methods they employ to construct a project. Construction details are often produced by contractors and their subcontractors, however, and reviewed by the design professional before being utilized.

In this manner, constructors and subcontractors may venture into the design process and subject themselves to its attendant risks and liabilities. The production and use of these “shop drawings” involves a carefully orchestrated flow of papers, and attention to each party’s proper role is important for minimizing risk.

In this informative 90-minute program, Stephen A. Hess of Sherman & Howard LLC presents an overview of the rights and responsibilities of the parties with respect to the use of shop drawings. Attend this program to:

  • Review the role of shop drawings in construction
  • Learn the traditional legal obligations of architects, engineers, contractors, and subcontractors for design and construction
  • Understand how standard form contracts allocate responsibility for shop drawings
  • Become conversant with design professionals’ responsibilities and liabilities associated with shop drawing review
  • Implement proper care and handling of shop drawings to limit unintended liabilities
  • Appreciate the relationship among specifications, shop drawings, and the Spearin Doctrine
  • And much, much more!
