Event Description

Get ahead of construction project conflicts before they lead to unnecessary litigation

Register now for this 60-minute session in which our expert speaker, Zach Jones, will present, in a checklist style, 10 fundamental strategies construction contracting professionals can use to avoid time-wasting and profit-eating legal disputes. (And then join us again for Part II of this program series on Oct 21 to find out the other five!)

Most legal disputes that arise from construction projects are avoidable. The key is to know how to get in front of an issue before it becomes a full-fledged-and costly-legal battle. Learn that very essential skill in this information-packed program.

Our expert will answer these critical questions:

  • What does my contract say-and what specific sections should demand my focus?
  • How do I file a claim if the owner and I cannot agree on something?
  • Who or what determines when the project must be completed?
  • Can the project schedule change after the contract is signed?
  • Who is responsible for what in regard to drawings and submittals?
  • If the architect, engineer, or owner approve my shop drawing, am I relieved of my responsibility?
  • What should I know about the preconstruction site investigation after construction starts?
  • If the ground conditions are different than the geotechnical investigation indicated, what do I do?

This presentation is appropriate for project managers, of course-but also for project engineers, superintendents, estimators, operations managers, principals, engineers, architects, construction managers and owner representatives.

After attending this webinar, you will gain a valuable checklist you can use at the start of every new project to safeguard against unnecessary legal conflicts. You will learn exactly what to look for when you review contract documents. And you will come away understanding how to identify potential claim triggers, as well as how to best preserve and present unavoidable claims.
