I am researching what, if any, liability attends an engineer's NOT reviewing shop drawings. Or, put alternately, what is our LEGAL responsibility to review shop drawings. I've heard all the ethical arguments about how we need to check others' interpretations of our design intent, and agree with them strongly. BUT ethics don't = $money$ and business types control our destiny, for the most part. So what I need are hard, legal cases where engineers have had their liability & responsibility defined regarding the link between design drawings + specs and the reality of construction. Can we contract away our liability for shop drawing review? Would the engineers in Kansas City (Hyatt collapse) have been protected if they specifically & conntractually avoided shop drawing review? My specific interest is Oregon, California and Florida (where I'm registered) but other federal and state laws may also enlighten. Thanks for whatever help you may offer.
