Legal Liabilities of Professionals in Building and Construction Projects (15th February 2017)

There are many talks and discussions focusing on the rights and obligations of the parties to a building or construction project viz. the Employer and the Contractor.

However, there are also many other professionals involved in a building or construction project contributing to its successful implementation. These include the designers employed either by the Employer or the Contractor, the staff responsible for the supervision of the construction works, as well as the independent checking consultants. It is also of equal importance for these professional persons to be aware of their responsibilities and liabilities under the respective contracts with their clients, as well as under the general law. With such awareness, the professionals can be more prepared to properly discharge their duties, and to adopt any necessary precautions to reduce their risks exposure to such legal liabilities.

This course is therefore designed to walk through the essential concepts and principles with the participants in relation to the various responsibilities and liabilities of those professionals involved in a building or construction project. Particular focus will be placed on the responsibilities and liabilities in the aspects of design, supervision and independent checking under the respective contracts of these professionals with their clients, as well as under the common law and under the relevant legislations, such as the Building Ordinance. Court cases and real life examples will be used to illustrate the concepts and principles discussed.
