Get Expert Guidance on Preparing and Documenting for a Construction Claim, and Quantifying its Delay & Impact!

Construction claims are an unwelcomed reality that all too many stakeholders are seeing progressively increase. A contract between parties is intended to represent that delicate equilibrium of covenant where each party has obligations in meeting the project goal. With cost, time and performance parameters becoming more rigid however, owner contracts are becoming stricter and there's greater reluctance to allow for deviations from the agreement. Any upset or imbalance to that equilibrium can either result in a mutually consented adjustment to that agreement, or a pending dispute.

Managing and effectively addressing and resolving disputes as they arise oftentimes involve more than prudent planning, good contracts and capable contractors. It involves a unique combination of a proactive approach as well as mutual trust and cooperation among the stakeholders. While these qualities and measures are helpful in reducing or managing claims, it will not eliminate them.

This session with expert speaker Peter Vosbikian will address some of the fundamental concepts and notions in understanding how claims can develop, how to document work and impacts, and how to quantify the impact of a change. It also addresses considerations for preparing change orders as well as guidelines for how to prepare a claim.

Whether you're starting or have already begun a project, experienced an impact, or involved in a claim, this session will provide guidance on how to prepare a claim. It will also provide insight on the data and documentation needed should an impact arise, as well as how to quantify the delay and cost impact incurred resulting from such changes.
