Another $#!%&#@ Spec

One of my customers just told me about a new engineering side step he found in a specification. It reads “….. if our design does not meet code, the bidding contractors must re-deign to meet code.”

Maybe we should just get rid of the engineers. Is it possible we could change the way things are so the engineers work for the electrical contractor on every project? I know that’s the way design-build works. I don’t suppose that scenario would work on hard-bid projects.
