Gausnell, O’Keefe & Thomas, LLC co-founder and principal attorney, William Thomas, wrote an article for Modern Contractor Solutions Magazine called “Standard of Care – building considerations to be adaptable throughout useful life.” In it, Thomas explains that meeting the standard of care in building designs means adapting to modern circumstances like the changing environment.
As is said, the more things change, the more they remain the same. Communication is still the single most important part of the design process. Designers should use a robust approach to design development, carefully consider the project they are designing, and ensure their client is fully appraised of all available options for a successful building, now and long into its uncertain future.
