Standard of Care Analysis

Architects and general contractors are required to perform their work with reasonable care and competence. The professional standard of care is what an architect or general contractor of good standing would do in similar circumstances and conditions. If an architect’s or general contractor’s performance comes into question, an objective peer review can determine if the appropriate standard of care was achieved.

RA&A has extensive experience providing standard of care analysis for both architects and general contractors in litigation cases. This analysis includes the review of:

  • Reports, plans, specifications, contracts and project files
  • Project type, location, building codes and conditions under which the work was performed
Building documents
