Event Description

How Geotech Data Management May Dramatically Shift Your Construction Contract Risks

Register now for this 60-minute webinar in which our expert speaker, Zach Jones, will reveal how the future of geotechnical data management will affect your construction contracting risks.

The differing site condition clause gives construction contractors a chance to recoup time and/or money for dealing with unknown or unexpected site conditions. But the element of surprise is the key to recovery—and recent changes in the way geotechnical data is managed, including how that information is made publicly available, may rob contractors of their critical, “I didn’t know” defense.

In this program, you will learn:

  • Key language in the most prevalent differing site conditions clauses
  • The elements to establish entitlement under a differing site condition clause
  • How geotechnical data was traditionally managed
  • The recent trend to make geotechnical data more widely available
  • How that trend could impact contractors bidding on construction projects
  • How that trend could impact contractor’s making differing site conditions claims

This presentation is appropriate for general contractors, subcontractors, owner representatives, project executives, construction managers, engineers and architects, estimators, business development professionals, contract administrators, and claims consultants.

After attending this webinar, you will better understand the differing site condition (or changed condition) clause as well as pre-construction best practices to protect your rights under that clause. Plus, you’ll learn common pitfalls contractors make—and how to avoid them.
