Soils are like a bad memory. They are always there, from the site selection and subsurface investigation process, to following designs, to the protection from legal liability in the contract documents, to the complications by the contractor in excavation, piling driving or achieving compaction. And then the claims that so often arise from a contractor encountering what he perceives as differing site conditions, to slabs heaving and water infiltration. After viewing this 90 minute recording, you will be able to:
- Understand the key issues involving soils and their various implications from the program phase through the construction phase and set forth suggestions for each of the parties (Owners, Designers, Contractors, Schedulers and Lawyers)
- Minimize technical and contractual problems when dealing with soils, differing site conditions and structural failures
- Fully understand the technical, financial and contractual issues
- And much, much more!
Who Will Benefit?
If you are the owner, design team, contractor, subcontractor or supplier and will suffer financial detriment when project objectives are not met, this is a must-attend webinar for you. As often legal issues arise out of the construction of these projects, construction attorneys, consultants and schedulers should also attend.
