Hazard Management Services has made available their latest whitepaper which serves as a brief discussion of hidden hazardous materials liability carried by Architects and other Design Professionals on construction, renovation and demolition projects.

Architects and Design Professionals often consider the responsibility for hazardous materials on a project to be the Owner’s, the Owner’s Consultants, and the Contractor’s. Such a strategy, frequently used in the past, is no longer reliable.

This paper includes discussion on why not addressing hazardous materials in plans and specifications does not eliminate this liability, and suggestions for reducing and managing the liabilities surrounding hazardous materials in construction.
