Lessons Learned is a one-of-a-kind guide that provides an in-depth
analysis of the court decisions issued in a given year on
design-build projects. An attempt is made to report on every
decision involving a design-build project, regardless of the
nature of the dispute, and explain the facts, legal rationale
behind the decision and lessons learned. As a result, each
edition of Design-Build Lessons Learned will provide informative
commentary on the practical consequences of the cases discussed.
While the specific
types of cases reported upon vary from year-to-year, there are
many topics that reappear year-after-year. For example, numerous cases discuss: (a) ownership rights
in the design documents; (b) liability to the design-builder as
the “single point of responsibility;” (c) liability of design
professionals to the contractor for errors in the design; (d) ADA
liability; and (e) conflicts in forming teaming relationships. Design-Build Lessons Learned will also appeal to those who
are involved in arbitration or mediation of design-build disputes,
as many of the cases discuss these ADR processes.
you are interested in seeing more detail about a particular year,
we have included the table of contents from each edition. We also identify the number of cases and two or three
specific cases that are reported upon that you might recognize.
