With the increasing role in projects that Construction Management firms have undertaken in the last 10 to 15 years, they face many of the same professional liability issues confronting architects and design professionals. These Construction Management Firms often serve as the “single point person” to design and build the project or to be the owner’s eyes and ears on projects.
For example, Construction Management firms may hire the architect, engineer and other sub-consultants to work on their behalf to deliver the design for a project. In this role, the firm can be held liable if an individual doesn’t perform with the appropriate standard care. While general contractors are not actively designing the project, they are vicariously liable for the actions of sub-consultants.
