PDI is a proud member of a/e ProNet and we frequently refer our retail agents to resources made available by them. One such resource was in the February issue of their newsletter titled: Template of Reasonable Contract Clauses for Design Professionals

It’s a collection of sample clauses that can be considered by architects & engineers in some common situations where a client might ask to modify a standard contract. The sample clauses include:

1. Certifications
2. Compliance with Law
3. Copyright of Documents
4. Cost Estimates Exceeded – Redesign Services Required
5. Incorporation by Reference and Flow Down
6. Indemnification
7. Limitation of Liability
8. Payment Provisions
9. Prevailing Party Attorneys fees
10. Site Visits/Inspection
11. Standard of Care
12. Suspension of Services
13. Time of Performance
14. Waiver of Consequential Damages
15. Withholding Fees
16. Warranties
It’s a resourceful document to refer to your design professional clients when these questions arise.
