40 Organizations Now Endorse Document
September 30, 2010

Forty organizations now endorse Recommended Practices for Design Professionals Engaged as Experts in the Resolution of Construction Industry Disputes, an annotated list of 13 “shoulds and should-nots” originally developed by the Interprofessional Council on Environmental Design (ICED).

ASFE/The Geoprofessional Business Association recognized the need for the document and spearheaded its development through the ICED, an “umbrella organization” also including, among others, the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), National Society of Professional Engineers (NSPE), American Council of Engineering Companies (ACEC), and The American Institute of Architects (AIA), all of which are endorsers. ICED assigned ASFE responsibility for the document’s publication and management, as well as gathering additional endorsers. Thirty-one additional U.S.-national organizations have endorsed the document. They include such well-known organizations as: the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME); American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE); Illuminating Engineering Society of North America (IES); Society of Manufacturing Engineers (SME); and American Association of Engineering Societies (AAES). The four remaining endorsers include an international association of national engineering organizations (the International Federation of Consulting Engineers) and three U.S. regional groups.

Copies of Recommended Practices for Design Professionals Engaged as Experts in the Resolution of Construction Industry Disputes are available at $15 each at ASFE’s website.
