AbstractMikami, an engineer, is hired by a client to supply complete engineering services for a project involving the design and construction of a building. Mikami recommends to the client that for safety reasons a full-time, on-site project engineer be hired. The client tells Mikami that it would be too expensive to do so. What can Mikami do about the client's decision to ignore her recommendation for a full-time project engineer? Includes references to the NSPE Code of Ethics, and a link to the original case brought before NSPE's Board of Ethical Review.
