Paul G. Carr: Why He Doesn't Believe The Conclusions of the Recently Published Study on College Design Fees

Posted: 4/8/2008

Paul G. Carr, assistant adjunct engineering professor at Cornell University, reviewed the recently published paper on higher-education design fees.

Carr's views about engineering fees are based on both self-interest and heartfelt worry about the profession. He is a retired founding partner of civil engineer Bernier-Carr Group of Cos., Watertown, N.Y., and currently is an assistant adjunct engineering professor at Cornell University, Ithaca, N.Y. In 2005 ASCE's Journal of Management in Engineering published a study co-authored by Carr that argued that the cause of lagging design fees was partly a result of design fee curves that had not been updated since the Justice Dept.'s antitrust lawsuits against designer associations.
