Event Description

Review the Common Construction Contract Provisions That Bar or Limit Recovery of the Contractor’s/Subcontractor’s Loss

As a contractor or construction professional, you inevitably incur costs and expense due to a fault attributable to the owner or others working on behalf of the owner, such as the design professional. These costs are usually not easy to recover and if you’re not careful, you might end up losing money. So how do you ensure you don’t end up paying for the owner’s mistakes?

In this webinar, industry veteran John Snow will teach you how to protect yourself from unanticipated losses by exploring typical contract damage limitations, as well as the methods through which you can prove the damages.

You will learn about the two common issues that affect your chances of recovery. The construction contract often bars or limits such damages based upon “no-damage-for-delay” provisions, change order provisions and similar terms in the contract. The second issue is proving the costs and expenses actually incurred by the contractor as a result of the fault of others. You will learn how to protect yourself from the inability to recover these types of losses, how to recognize the effects of damage limitations contained in the contract, and how to maintain records and documents to prove the loss within the terms of the contract.

Snow will review and explore the typical or common construction contract provisions that bar or limit your recovery of loss or expense due to the fault of the owner or those working on behalf of the owner. You will also learn about the alternatives through which you can protect yourself from unanticipated loss through simple modifications, as well as subcontract provisions that enable the loss to pass-through to the owner.
