10 Common Mistakes That Cause Construction Claims & Disputes

Register now for this 90-minute webinar in which our expert speakers, Michael L. Pettinella and James G. Zack, Jr., will reveal the top ten missteps both owners and contractors make that unnecessarily waste time and money.

What causes the majority of construction claims? Surprise! It’s not delays, changes, site conditions, or lost productivity. A recent global survey found that contract administration issues are the number one cause of construction claims. And both owners and contractors are to blame. But you can avoid triggering contract administration-related claims and disputes with the practical advice offered in this webinar.

Your presenters will discuss the legal risk and practical problems that arise due to:

  • Failing to settle delays as they arise
  • Using RFI’s to correct errors or redesign the project
  • Discouraging written notices
  • Proceeding with changes without a written change order
  • Failing to track time and cost damages separately from base scope time and costs
  • Failingto create a baseline schedule and issue accurate schedule updates
  • Contractors financing owner-caused changes

This presentation is appropriate for: Public and private owners performing capital improvement projects, contractors and subcontractors working on such projects, legal counsel assisting construction clients, design professionals, construction managers, and other key parties involved in both public and private construction contracts.

After attending this webinar, you will fully understand the dangers of common contract administration mistakes—and be well equipped to proactively avoid unnecessary claims and disputes on your next construction project.
