Re: Engineering service

Unless you can somehow limit your liability to just
the items that are mentioned, I would assume that
you will be taking all the responsibility for the entire
project.  I doubt that it would be very easy to limit
your liability.  You might talk to your lawyer, or 
insurance agent.  My feeling is that you will likely need
to review the entire project, and make sure that it
is something that you feel comfortable with.
