‘Architects don’t approve drawings’: Studio E associate denies signing off cladding


Without wishing to judge without knowing the full circumstances, a very salient matter is raised here. "Architecture is the second oldest profession"....I see so many architects bowing to pressure to sign agreements they know they shouldn't, that they don't even have the ability to fulfil, often because they think they will secure the job and they get away with it and the worst will not happen to them. But sometimes it does. Their bullying clients are morally equally, if not more, responsible, but in law they have shed liability and the need for skill from themselves, to the party who is most likely to have PI running the longest. The lower down the food chain one is, the more the pressure to secede integrity. Time for the profession to stand up and be counted, and to understand the nuances of contract. PI has rocketed this year because insurers have lost faith in the profession.
