Construction contracts in New York often place the architect or engineer in the additional role of an initial impartial decider as to any disagreement or disputes between the contractor and the owner, in addition to their roles as the design professionals.
Many contractors and subcontractors go about their work feeling protected from claims for damages because their agreements contain certain exclusions. Some of these agreements will even have language stating ‘Not responsible for [X, Y, and Z]’.
Defective construction exists throughout all construction projects, and it is likely no construction project is ever completed perfectly. In New York construction, however, perfection is not the legal standard work is required to achieve.
