2022 Top Ten Risk Education Articles for Architects

The following Top 10 Reads of 2022 reflect the interests and needs of Ontario's Architects. We hope it's illuminating and powers you up to expand your knowledge and understanding of risks associated with architectural practice.

With 2022 wrapping up, we’re sharing the year’s most-read risk education articles and news items.* This is our third annual list providing a round-up of what architects found interesting to read this year from their professional liability insurer.

Topping the 2002 list is the well-received List of Lawyers, referring architects to Pro-Demnity’s “go-to” lawyers for all things related to protecting a practice’s business interests. Architect’s Claims Stories podcast lays “claim” to the second spot, with four published episodes recounting the circumstances of a real claim, inspired by the 6,000+ that Pro-Demnity has defended over the years. In third place is Sorry. Not Sorry, which provides insight into The Apology Act and the potential legal and insurance implications of apologizing.

Two articles from last year’s list remained on the 2022 list. 25 things within an architect’s control jumped to 6th spot this year from 10th last year and, Navigating Risk: What Practice Leaders Do, holds the 10th spot.

  1. Lawyers available to assist architects
  2. Architects’ claims stories podcast
  3. Sorry. Not sorry
  4. Eight risk trends to watch
  5. Architects and 30.10 actions
  6. 25 things within an architect’s control
  7. Client management as a risk management strategy
  8. The architect as expert witness
  9. Limitation periods: Is an architect ever safe from litigation?
  10. Navigating Risk: What Practice Leaders Do

Most of the reads take less than 3 minutes, delivering valuable expertise to support architects in their professional roles, while providing relevant and useful solutions that help architects to manage, mitigate, avoid, transfer, or assume risk with eyes wide open.


*The rankings were driven by stakeholders including (but not limited to) architects, architectural technologists, architectural practice leaders, partners and principals, risk leaders, insurance decision-makers, policyholders and ancillary professionals (i.e., lawyers, engineers), as derived from website visits and page views from January 1, 2022 to December 4, 2022.
