“Case Summary: The Issuance of a Building Permit was Unreasonable because the Drawings Were Not Made in Compliance with the Architects Act” Re-Published by Quickscribe Reporter

A recent case summary authored by Harper Grey lawyer Jackson Doyle was re-published in the September 2020 edition of the Quickscribe Reporter.

Originally published in the LexisNexis® Harper Grey Administrative Law Netletter, “Case Summary: The Issuance of a Building Permit was Unreasonable because the Drawings Were Not Made in Compliance with the Architects Act” discusses the decision in Architectural Institute of British Columbia v. Langford (City), 2020 BCSC 881. In this case, the Court held that the City’s decision to issue a building permit for a structure that was designed in contravention of the Architects Act, and without considering the Architects Act, was not reasonable.
