Standard of Care
Heavy Civil

The Heavy and Civil Engineering Construction subsector comprises establishments whose primary activity is the construction of entire engineering projects (e.g., highways and dams), and specialty trade contractors, whose primary activity is the production of a specific component for such projects.

Specialty trade contractors in Heavy and Civil Engineering Construction generally are performing activities that are specific to heavy and civil engineering construction projects and are not normally performed on buildings. The work performed may include new work, additions, alterations, or maintenance and repairs.

The successful coordination and management of heavy civil projects is crucial because it minimizes inconvenience to the public, local community, and motorists.

VERTEX evaluates the heavy civil engineer construction against the requirements of contract documents, applicable laws and regulations, and industry standards to opine whether or not a heavy civil engineer’s conduct met or fell below a requisite standard of care.
