Darren Barker Discusses the Importance of Taking Timely Notes During Construction Conflicts

American Institute of Architects (AIA) Orange County Chapter’s January Meeting
January 14, 2015

Darren Barker presented on “CA Supreme Court Decision Increases Litigation Exposure of Architects” at the American Institute of Architects (AIA) Orange County chapter’s January meeting, held January 14, 2015. The presentation focused on how the California Supreme Court decision in “Beacon Residential v SOM” expands an architect’s duty of care to future residential property owners, where there is no contractual relationship. In this segment, he stresses the importance of writing down the details of construction conflicts soon after they occur in order to help build a strong case down road in the event that litigation ensues.
