Liabilities in Landscapes (Webinar 28/11/19)


Good design extends beyond the built form to the surrounding landscapes. Until the landscapes which complement and embellish the buildings which they border are finalised, a project is not truly complete. The role of a landscape architect is to create beauty and function through nature, but designing landscapes is not without risk. Landscape architects, as well as the clients and consultants who work with them, need to understand the risk profile of their profession. This webinar looks at how the challenges and opportunities for construction consultants play out specifically in this discipline.

In this recorded webinar, informed Risk Managers – Natalie Sullivan and Wendy Poulton cover some fundamental risk management principles and then focus on more detailed illustrations through case studies of reported claims, to help you better understand the risks and avoid common pitfalls in landscape architecture.
