About This Item


Full Description

Legal disputes and litigation are costly, time consuming, burdensome, and stressful for an HVAC&R engineer. Engineers should recognize this and plan accordingly by taking the appropriate steps to protect themselves. This installment of The ASHRAE Member’s Survival Guide helps engineers avoid damaging legal exposure by identifying common pitfalls and by suggesting sound business and professional practices that allows engineers to steer clear of those pitfalls. The text approaches the issue chronologically, beginning with the time a commission is first offered and continuing through the pre-design, design, and construction phases of a project. This guide addresses issues like professional responsibility, pre-engagement discussions with clients and owners, planning and executing designs, reviewing requests for information, and more.

This document is part of The ASHRAE Member’s Survival Guide. The other installments are "Contracts" and "Design/Build." "Contracts" comes with a three-ring binder into which all Survival Guide documents can be inserted as they are published. These documents are sold separately.
