Keep Your Project Out Of the Courtroom

Most project owners do not give sufficient thought, during the planning and design phases of a contract, to managing construction claims and avoiding legal disputes.  That means, when change orders or claims do arise, there are more questions than answers—about direct vs. indirect labor, proving and calculating delays, extended overhead costs, RFI management, “unusually severe” weather interruptions, and more.

Don’t let lack of forethought create unnecessary legal headaches. Join construction industry veterans James G. Zack, Jr. and Steven A. Collins in this information-packed audio presentation to learn to plan ahead to avoid disputes—at every stage of your project. Collins and Zack will clue you in on how to craft scheduling specifications, how to spec a change order, how to create a dispute resolution system, and how to track project trends.

After attending this audio event, you will understand the value of proactively planning to avoid disputes. You will know how to use a well-drafted “Payment for Changes” clause, mitigate delay damages, and avoid difficult cost negotiations and audits due to owner-caused delay—all so that you can quickly resolve project claims and stay as far away as possible from trials and arbitration hearings. You’re in this business to build, not get stuck in disputes—learn how to reduce your claims risks for good.
