Mr. Ethics - November 2015

Mr Ethics

Dear Mr. Ethics, We are the architect of record for a hospital, new construction project. Our contract calls for us to be the initial decision maker for any contractor disputes that arise on the project including any claims that allege errors and omissions against us. The general contractor wants that provision stricken from the project agreements because they believe that we should not be ruling on our own potential errors or omissions. They argue its patently unethical.

Mr. Ethics - October 2015

Mr Ethics

Dear Mr. Ethics, I have recently graduated from engineering college. I was hired by a great mechanical engineering firm. I regularly attend project presentations with the senior staff. One particular senior member is a great guy who probably knows more than I ever will. My problem is that when we do our presentations he never corrects the potential client when they refer to him as a PE. He never graduated from college and never even sat for the PE. I think he is acting unethically.
