I confused by section 1.1.9 of the B101 listing Civil Engineers under the Owner's consultant section. In all of my professional experience, the civil engineer has been contracted through the designer/architect. Even in cases with planning approvals being necessary for project approval, the civil engineer is brought on by us earlier in the process.
I have listened to the Schiff Hardin lecture on this topic, and I guess that it is because the scope of projects that I have been part of have never warranted that the owner providing civil services prior to engaging the design team. Any help is greatly appreciated.
