Architects and engineers routinely stamp shop drawings and other submittals with vague language-e.g., “no exceptions taken”-intended to limit their scope of, and liability for, submittal review. This seminar will cover the legal significance of these disclaimers: how do courts treat these disclaimers and what are the consequences for other project participants, such as owners, contractors and subcontractors? Mr. Katz will also discuss related issues such as the contractual process under which submittals are prepared, submitted, reviewed and approved; the consequences of approving defective submittals; a contractor's obligation to review and approve the submittals of its subcontractors; and statutory obligations affecting submittals. The submittals process is vital to any successful project. Delays in submittal submission, review and approval can-and often do-significantly impact the project schedule. This seminar will address the often-overlooked contractual and legal issues surrounding submittals that owners, architects, engineers and contractors face on projects every day.
