DELEGATED DESIGN – WHAT DOES IT MEAN AND HOW TO COMMUNICATE IT TO THE CONTRACTOR

As Owners continue to whittle down architectural fees, architects seeks to transfer design responsibility to the Contractor and their sub-contractors for portions of the work that require engineering. Commonly used systems include such items as cold formed metal framing, stairs, handrails/guardrails, and roofing systems.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand what delegated design means and what documentation should be requested. 
  • Learn what the architect’s responsibility is for reviewing submittals. 
  • Learn to identify what products/systems should fall into the delegated design category.
