The resort can then look back at the contractors stuff, look back at our stuff, and determine that we were supposed to tell the contractor exactly how to build this, so it's our fault that it's not built correctly and then therefore, the monetary claim or penalty would be placed on us, it's our fault. But if we've detailed it exactly how we need to detail it, following the 2010 ADA requirements, and the contractor builds it incorrectly, and the same process ensues, then the client knows that we weren't the ones at fault, the contractor was. It's bad to play the blame game, but unfortunately it happens, and if you cover yourself it's gonna be a lot simpler in the long run.
