“Mistakes can happen in any professional service, but those in the design and construction industry can be particularly costly. The bigger the project, the bigger the potential price tag to correct any errors.” – Kenneth Labelle, Broker, Professional Liability, Burns & Wilcox Brokerage, Chicago, Illinois
