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


@Atticus. Largely agree. I would not novate to a contractor. I would not agree "required to seek to ensure the designs complied with relevant Statutory Requirements". What, in legal terms, does "seek to ensure mean". Try but not bother too much ? Professional Indemnity Insurance (PII) has rocketed because of worries about cladding replacement costs. Insurers are very focused. Surveyors for example, cannot obtain insurance to inspect and open up suspect cladding, stopping the whole process of replacement.
