So, an architect forgets to draw control joints and points to a general boilerplate language that mentions control joints but nothing else. Somehow this ends bypasses not only the architect who was on-site weekly for a year, the General Contractor and gets laid completely at the feet of the subcontractor as being their fault. What’s worse is a nearly identical school was started 6 months earlier and they are trying to do the same thing to that subcontractor. No responsibility, nada, zip, none, nothing, not so much as a peep from either the GC or the architect as to their responsibilities.

What exclusions do you add to your bids? Why? Normally something has happened and general logic was abandoned so a subcontractor is forced to spell it out even more. Let us know what has happened to you to add to your exclusions. We’ll be sharing ours and the background behind each one.
Spearin part one has been executed and now the city, the GC, and the substandard supplier are now piled together in one lawsuit. Spearin part deux seems to be a possibility with the architect who failed to correctly draw the plans.
For some reason there seems to be a trend among architects to deny responsibility for poor design. Instead they would prefer to off load it to the sub-contractors. Have some pride and quit throwing the subs under the bus.
