Unless it is found that your design/sketches have obvious flaws or your
structure qualifies under UBC section 1702 for Structural Observation I would
think your work ends when your design is finished and submitted to your client.
Unless of course your client wants to pay for additional services.
The SEAOC "Recommended Guidelines for the Practice of Structural Engineering in
California" has suggested Construction Phase activities which should be covered
(or specifically deleted) from your services contract.

Subject: Responsibility to complete projects through construction.
What responsibility does an engineer have to follow a job through completion
during construction? If the original work agreement covered only structural
design, what responsibility does the EOR have to follow the project through
