Professional Negligence – Architects
The involvement of an Architect in a new build or re-design of an existing property is crucial and an allegation of negligence can be as a result of a number of factors. The design of the property or extension might be so poor that it would never have been given planning permission or because the materials recommended were inappropriate. In extreme cases architects’ negligence can pose a serious risk to safety if the building had been constructed in an unsafe way. Architects are also often instructed to act as Project Managers, to oversee the construction and control costs but acted so poorly that the client incurred unnecessary and significant additional costs.

What is the Harris Fowler approach?
At Harris Fowler we make a very careful assessment of the legal issues involved to establish what the allegations are against the professional, what advice was given, in what form, why that advice might have been wrong and what losses were suffered by the client as a result. The basic aim of pursuing a professional negligence action is to put our client into the position they would likely to have been in had the professional not breached the duty owed to that client.
