If so, as a Contractor, shall we conduct construction work with confidence? It means Any subsequent damage caused by the incorrect info provided by the employer must be beared by the contractor?

This scenario is not too unusual and I was in fact debating that as member of a panel at a seminar yesterday. In these circumstances the Contractor has taken the risk so should satisfy itself that the required information is correct, sufficient and accurate. If not I would strongly advise carrying out further investigations or the risk the contractor exposes itself too is very considerable.
