This course provides delegates with an understanding of the scope of design liability together with how to appoint consultants and sub-contractors to ensure risks are passed down the supply chain. The course will also look at other documents often associated with design liability.


This course is particularly suited to main contractors, and personnel involved with appointing professionals or dealing with designers at whatever stage of a project.

Course outline
