Join Patrick Groom, Victor Kim and Annik Forristal of McMillan’s National Construction Group on Wednesday, February 28thfor a discussion about the Supreme Court of Canada’s recent decision in R. v. Greater Sudbury and its implications for consulting engineers.
Following a brief overview of the case and the SCC’s split decision, this discussion will focus on how this decision impacts the obligations and potential liabilities of the consulting engineer in its role as designer and contract administrator. The discussion will be interactive and will include an extensive Q&A period.
- What did the Supreme Court of Canada decide? To what extent, if any, do the facts of the case involve or relate to engineers?
- What are the responsibilities of the consultant for health and safety at a construction site in light of the Sudbury decision?
- What can the consulting engineer do to protect itself from liability?
- What terms and conditions should be included in contracts to protect the engineer? What terms and conditions should the engineer watch out for?
