Thursday’s 6pm ET Zoom study session is titled, “Michael Hanahan PcM Blitz.” As you likely know, Michael is the creator of the Perkins Coie lectures (formerly called Schiff Hardin lectures). You’ll take the first five minutes of class to answer the questions alone, but if you would like to get a head-start on that, here is the assignment:
On a construction site, a subcontractor laborer asked an architect to fetch a wheelbarrow. The architect obliged and the wheelbarrow was set down behind the laborer; the architect let him know verbally that it was there. The laborer, forgetting about the wheelbarrow behind him, backed up, fell over the wheelbarrow, and was seriously injured. Whose insurance (and which type of insurance policy. . . Workers’ comp? General Liability? Professional Liability?) would cover this? What if the injured party were a consultant hired by the architect instead of a sub hired by the contractor?
In a standard owner-architect agreement for a brownfield, should the architect promise to meet life safety, zoning, and accessibility requirements? Should the owner, in that particular owner-architect contract, promise to address any toxins that may be found on the site? Should the architect, in that particular owner-architect contract, promise to address any toxins that may be found on the site?
An architect for Firm A served as a project manager for an award-winning large government building project. The architect, having left the previous firm to cofound Firm B is responding to an RFP for a new large government building. Can the architect include the previous project, completed for another firm, in the ”past experience” section of the RFP?
Is it required that the AHJ issues the certificate of occupancy before the architect certifies substantial completion?
Who is responsible for obtaining information from the municipal sewer authority to locate an easement? (Architect, civil engineer, mechanical engineer, or property owner?) Who is responsible for obtaining information from the municipal sewer authority to determine the capacity of the municipal sewer in order to determine feasibility of linking the proposed new building to the existing sewer system? (Architect, civil engineer, mechanical engineer, or property owner?)
In what phase of design does a constructability review happen? Who is responsible for it in Design-Bid-Build? Who in Design-Build? Who when there’s a construction manager?
