After years of ambiguous cases, the Kentucky Supreme Court recently clarified Kentucky’s position on the economic loss doctrine in Giddings & Lewis, Inc. v. Industrial Risk Insurers, Nos. 2009-SC-000485-DG, 2009-SC-000825-DG, 2011 WL 2436154 (Ky. June 16, 2011). When a defective product damages only itself, the economic loss doctrine bars tort claims, limiting recovery to contractual remedies. Economic losses primarily “deprive the purchaser of the benefit of his bargain,” and thus contract law is the appropriate remedy for such losses. Economic losses often include costs for repair or replacement of the product itself, lost profits, and other similar losses. On the other hand, when a defective product injures people or other property, tort claims remain appropriate remedies.

Standard Integrated Project Delivery Agreements allow for incentive pools benefiting portions of the design and construction teams. The purpose of these incentives is to encourage collaboration and savings.
Attorney Will Lichtig created a new contract form for use on projects adopting Lean Project Delivery. This contract was the basis for the Tri-Party Agreement for Collaborative Project Delivery form put forth by the Consensus Document group.
Most Owners are unaware of the different project delivery options available to them. But those who are aware may select the project delivery method that best suits their projects. This blog quickly summarizes four project delivery methods available to Owners.
The core premise of Lean Project Delivery is intensive collaboration based on trust. Critical to its successful implementation is free flowing communication between team members. Construction and design participants are brought into the project at the beginning of the design. This allows critical dialogues to take place during design rather than later, when changes become more expensive.
The pinnacle of lean construction is integrated project delivery (IPD). With IPD, the owner, contractor and designer enter into one contract. The purpose is to create a collaborative approach and reduce overall risk to the project and to each participant.
Controlling the risks inherent in a commercial construction project can be daunting, even for experienced owners. And the challenges are greater in today’s economic environment. Experience shows that the risk of contractor failure does not go away, and may briefly intensify, as economic recovery begins.
