Design mistakes can be costly

Construction projects in California can entail intricate designs on a huge scale. They may encompass several acres of land and employ hundreds of people. Large jobs can take years to complete and use significant capital. Disputes can impact the total cost and whether you, as the owner, complete the undertaking. At Castro & Associates, we specialize in contract disputes involving complex residential and commercial construction.

According to the Construction Specifier, contract errors and omissions occur on virtually every project. The more complicated the undertaking, the more likely that issues arise. There are several different types of design mistakes that can affect the project timelines.

One of the most common is design errors. These are instructions or lack of instructions that result in incorrect action by your contractor. They typically require replacement or correction. A building design may specify materials that do not meet fire code or equipment that does not fit a space correctly.

Omissions happen when one or more building code provisions are not on the plans or addressed in the specifications. Communicating with a broad range of disciplines and organizations is challenging. As a project progresses, every aspect is subject to revision due to several factors:

  • Building codes
  • Lighting requirements
  • Aesthetic ambitions
  • Electrical and mechanical codes
  • Heating and cooling loads
  • Infrastructure and physical spaces

Experienced contractors, architects and designers understand what to look for. They can help you increase the chances of catching errors or omissions throughout every stage of the project. Ongoing communications can also enable plans to move forward. However, some problems call for the help of a legal professional. Visit our webpage for more information on this topic.
