The Coleman Executive Roundtable for Architects and Engineers

The quarterly Roundtable is a community of architectural and engineering industry leaders who come together to network and learn.

Senior executives and corporate counsel of architecture and engineering firms gather for a 45-minute presentation by experts on a topic of immediate and practical relevance, followed by 45 minutes of discussion. Peers share ideas about current issues and best practices.

To ensure a true roundtable discussion, participation is limited. If you’re interested in being put on the invitation list, please contact Margaret Mills (event planner for The Coleman Executive Roundtable) at 952-595-6166 or

Delegated Design: Lessons Learned and State of the Art

Delegated design and responsibility for design work continue to be hot topics. The reason? This practice of transferring design responsibility continues to gain popularity. The RoundTable will not be limited to structural engineering, but will also cover curtainwall design and mechanical/electrical design build.

The presentation will include an overview of industry guidance and best practices. Breakfast will be served along with insight and information from peers.

Presenter: Jeff Coleman, PE, FACI, Coleman & Erickson. Jeff has followed the development of this issue for almost 40 years, going back to the Kansas City Hyatt Walkway collapse.
