Resolve claims at the design/construction phrase, not in the courtroom

Register now for this 90-minute webinar in which our expert speakers, Steven A. Collins and James G. Zack, Jr., willreveal how owners—and contractors—can avoid end-of-project disputes through upfront dispute resolution planning during the design, bid, and construction phases of a project. 

Construction projects are a fertile breeding ground for claims—unless everything on the project proceeds exactly as planned. To avoid all claims, there must be no changes, no delays, no shortage of qualified craft labor, no late delivery of equipment and materials, no bad weather, etc.  And that’s not going to happen. Even the pyramids in Egypt had changes, delays, and construction problems.

Butcontract claims—that is, requests for additional time or money—do not have to result in disputes. 
Youcan learn toeffectively resolve claims before they escalate to the legal arena.

This information-packed session will reveal:

  • 4 types of reviews you should apply to your construction contracts
  • The ins and outs of a comprehensive scheduling specification
  • The benefits of escrow bid documents, project partnering, pre-construction audits, project trending, and short-interval schedule submittals
  • Why you should pre-purchase  owner-caused delay and lock in delay costs
  • Why and how to draft a thorough payment-for-changes clause
  • How to predict the weather for a project
  • How to reduce claims based on a large volume of RFIs
  • How to implement standing negotiation teams and decision ladders
  • The value of a dispute resolution board

This presentation is appropriate for both construction attorneys and industry professionals—including owners, owner site representatives, contractors, subcontractors, construction managers, and design professionals.

After attending this webinar, you will understand why and how to plan to avoid disputes from the outset of a project. Plus, you will have gained new ways to mitigate delay damages and avoid the need for difficult delay cost negotiations and audits.
