Consult Australia agreements

This note is currently under review due to release of new agreement.

In order to protect the architect's interests under their professional indemnity insurance policy, it is recommended that, in any agreement with an engineer under the Consult Australia Guideline Terms of Agreement, an architect should include the following provisions:

  • A decision given by the President under the provision of Clause 6.2 is deemed to be an opinion only and is not binding on the parties to this agreement.
  • The architect will be liable to their client, in respect of works for which the consulting engineer is responsible, only for the period of liability specified in Clause 4.3.
