Event description

Description

Please join us for our joint CSC Calgary & Edmonton Lunch Meeting in Red Deer.

Deferred/Delegated/Assigned Design Practices – Good, Bad or Ugly it is a Concept that Requires Discussion

The presentation will cover:

The words ‘delegated design’ have become a trend within document preparation and contract delivery. It is a concept that has been around for decades and used successfully to address design solutions that cannot be finalized during the production of construction drawings and specifications. More recently ‘delegated design’ has contributed to a decline in the quality of construction documentation and fears of unreasonable transference of design responsibility and liability between the various contributors providing engineered solutions.

The discussion will address the history of deferred design, the participants and contributors, methods for obtaining design solutions and realigning the chain of responsibility to reduce concerns surrounding design liability. The presentation will also provide insight into actions being undertaken by various professional associations and technical document publishers.
