I've tried searching for an answer for this here. I've seen different version of the question but don't feel as though I've gotten the answer.
In the Architect Consultant agreement, C401, section 1.4 says the architect shall not be responsible for the acts and omissions of the consultants.
In A201 states that the contractor is responsible for their subs and subs-subs.
Question: If a contractor wants to charge for work created by an act or omission of the Architect consultant, does the contractor go after the architect? Who does the contractor charge?
There is no contractual obligation between the Contractor and Architect or Contractor and Architect consultant. Since there is only an obligation between Contractor and Owner, does the Owner pay the contractor, then owner recoups that money from the architect through B101? Following that, the Architect will recoup that money from the consultant through C401?
