Change Orders and Implied Obligations - Cyber Week Special: 2-Part Series with Free Subscription

Changes and disputes on construction projects are inevitable. Many are due to owner-directed changes or change conditions encountered on a project. Others are due to obligations created by contract clauses. These two exclusive recorded webinars, presented by construction attorney Stephen Hess, provide in-depth coverage of these subjects to help you tackle disputes that may arise. Have your whole team involved so they can anticipate possible issues and be prepared to properly recover extra costs and time where due. Owners, designers and the contract administration team can better prepare construction documents to avoid these situations, and when they do arise, will be more effective in resolving issues accordingly.

 

For Black Friday, Construction Claims Advisor is offering both of these two very popular programs, which regularly sell for $199 each, for the price of one AND providing a free 1-year subscription. This offer expires November 25, 2018; don't delay.

Avoiding Contract Provisions and Construction Management Practices that Generate Claims

We all want to avoid claims, but too frequently our contract provisions and construction management practices actually work against us and lead to the generation of claims! The key to successful claims avoidance, once the project contract has been executed, is to provide the project team with the tools it needs to identify problems quickly, measure impacts reliably, and price those impacts fairly in order to resolve changes as they arise and, thus, avoid claims. Although all contract provisions aim to avoid claims, in reality, some of the most significant claim avoidance-related provisions actually generate claims.

 

This recorded session will identify contract provisions that lead to claims as well as construction management practices that encourage claims. The speaker offers practical solutions and alternatives to these provisions and practices.

Avoiding the Pitfalls Of Scope Creep on Construction Projects

Project success can be measured by delivering the required product on time, on budget and at the client’s expectation. For many construction projects in today’s competitive marketplace, completing on time and on budget is challenging. Scope creep is a term used in the construction industry to define the inevitable tendency of projects to expand beyond their original intent and is often described as a cause for construction projects experiencing cost and schedule overruns. In the planning stages of any construction project, owners, designers, and contractors each have a vested interest in defining the full project scope and developing an accurate budget. However, as the project progresses, scope creep can go unnoticed, gradually work its way into a project’s scope as expectations evolve and result in significant negative impacts.
