Duty to correct and warn

This duty of the architect to exercise due care, skill and diligence may extend not only to the architect's client, but also to a person who, after a building is finished, enters it and by reason of faults in design or construction comes to harm. However, in the absence of a contract between that person and the architect, the duty will only extend where the damage was the reasonably foreseeable consequence of the carelessness or negligent conduct of the architect.
