An architect draws plans for a hotel remodel. The architect provides drawings
for built-in guestroom desks and cabinetry. The plans are sent out to
bid and a local cabinetry shop is awarded the contract to build the casework.
One year after the installation of the completed casework, the desks start
to fall apart. The cabinet shop is called in to fix many failing pieces
throughout the guest rooms. They notice that in many guestrooms the desks
are dropping and becoming detached from the main cabinet.
What is the problem? Who is responsible for this problem? Did the cabinetry
shop build the cabinetry per the plans provided by the Architect? Did
the carpenter cut corners? Did the architect draw the plans properly for
this application? Are the guestroom cabinets being abused by guests?
