High Court of Australia – 25 May 1965

FACTS

Florida Hotels decided to construct a pool at the rear of one of its hotels. Mayo was retained as the architect to design the pool.

Cooks, an employee of Florida Hotels, was injured when a concrete slab fractured. The fracture was caused by  the faulty placement of reinforcing mesh.

 ISSUE

Did Mayo owe a duty of care to Florida Hotels and Cook to design the pool and supervise the construction of the pool?
