Know the Whole Process of Proving & Pricing Subcontractor Delays

When it comes to construction projects - a lot has been written over the years about pricing and proving contractor claims. However, it has been observed that a very little has been said about subcontractor delay claims. Do subcontractors enjoy the same remedies and rights, the prime contractor enjoys? Are they both assessed in the same standards? What are the legal rights of prime contractors and subcontractors? Are owners supposed to owe time extensions when it comes to subcontractor delays? If prime contractors 'pass through' a subcontractor's delay claim to an owner, are they at risk? If a prime contractor opts to not sponsor their delay claims to owners, are they at risk? Join this session by expert speaker James G. Zack, Jr. to answer all these queries.

After attending this webinar you will have a better understanding of the issues, risks and challenges concerning subcontractor delay and impact claims.  As a result legal disputes concerning such claims at the end of the project may be avoided.
