A question of responsibility The problems of working in a team with other and independent professionals are ever with us; Mr. D. G. McBeth writes on the question of responsibility in such a situation: The majority of contracts upon which I am engaged are being run under the RIBA conditions of contract. I have long been concerned about the position of the structural engineer, in that we are not legally part of the contract. Although we may be mentioned in the bills (but even this is not necessarily the case) all reference to the 'engineer' in specifications is usually deleted in favour of the 'architect', who is, therefore, 'responsible' for approving concrete mix designs, checking steel fabrication drawings, trussed rafter workshop drawings, etc. Verulam
