The City of Whiting, Indiana (the City) contracted with American Structurepoint, Inc. (Engineer) to design a lakefront park that would protect its shoreline from erosion (the Project). Engineer subcontracted with Whitney, Bailey, Cox, & Magnani, LLC (Subconsultant) to serve as the marine engineer for the Project (the Subcontract). Pursuant to the Subcontract, Subconsultant designed a revetment to protect the Project shoreline. The revetment failed, damaging the City’s property and necessitating remediation.
