Community: I felt as though I understood the Standard Of Care until I created a situation in my head and was unable to answer whether or not the Arch met the SOC. Imagine this scenario: Arch provides all necessary information to his struct engineer. Anticipated dead and live loads. Fixed equipment moveable furniture etc.. anticipated maximum allowable occupancy. Structural engineer provides the structural components but miscalculates his numbers: during construction columns buckle building collapses. Did the Architect meet the SOC because he provided all necessary requirements? Or: did he not meet the SOC because he did not verify the engineers calculations?
