An engineer who conducts field reviews of a construction project may use his or her discretion to determine the number of site visits required, but the Court will review the timing of the site visits to determine if they were sufficient to perform the functions required of the field reviews. The Court determined that, in this case, the number and timing of field reviews was inadequate in the circumstances. The Court held the Contractor 80% liable for failing to build properly and the Engineer 20% responsible for failing to undertake adequate field reviews.
