In most instances, plans and specifications are, without question, critical to the success of any construction project. When the plans and specifications are clear and without significant errors or omissions, the project is much more likely to be on time and within budget. But, what happens when plans are riddled with errors, conflicts or omissions? This webinar will provide you with valuable tips for addressing your obligations, rights and remedies when confronted with poorly drafted, ambiguous or conflicting plans and specifications on both public and private construction projects. Knowing what options are available and what you can or should do to mitigate damages, address the problem and pursue or protect the parties’ rights will assist you when you inevitably encounter bad plans.
This presentation will discuss the role of parties to traditional design-bid-build projects and when obligations arise in the bid process due to faulty plans and specifications, who is at risk during construction, and theories and tips for recovery after construction. You will be more prepared to identify those situations where bad plans and specs might arise, and understand what the parties’ various options, rights and remedies might be.
