Architects

Architects design new buildings, extensions or alterations to existing buildings and advise on the restoration and conservation of old properties. It’s a long established trade and as such, Architects are regarded as a ‘traditional’ profession.

Architects can be exposed to a wide range of claims, which can include (but are not limited to):-

  • Errors in the production of drawings, schedules, specifications or quantities of materials
  • Failure to make or renew planning permission requests within the given time scales
  • An incorrect assessment of a client’s requirements, particularly with regard to timescales or financial limits imposed by a contract
  • Inadequate supervision of contractors or other professionals
  • Negligent site layout
  • Negligent survey report
