Perhaps a little excessive, but this is good advice. If you do proceed, be aware that you are exposing yourself to a certain amount of risk in the event of major flaws being exposed in the design.
In my limited number of nixers, extensions and houses to planning mostly, i have always included “Planning Drawings only, not to be used for construction, check all dimensions on site”. If somebody uses them for construction after that it’s not my business. If somebody else chooses to sign off that constructed building that’s also not my business.
Is this a legitimate disclaimer SW? As in would it stand up in court? It seems strange that by including such a simple disclaimer on your drawings you can avoid paying the huge premiums being requested by PII providers. Obviously having PII is the way to go and I may look into the RIBA’s mini version as suggested by missarchi, but at the moment the quotes I am getting (from Irish companies) are extortionate and render the job unfeasible.
Thanks for your help with this one guys.
