Webinar description:
When asked about the most common causes of construction claims, owners and contractors will likely recite a lengthy list including changes, delays, site conditions, lost labor productivity, etc.  However, a recent global survey of the top five causes of claims found that contract administration issues are the largest cause of claims. 

The Navigant Construction Forum™ has determined that contract administration issues are not caused solely by one party to the contract but rather are caused by both owners and contractors.  This webinar identifies the top ten mistakes owners make that cause claims, as well as the top ten contractor mistakes that give rise to disputes.  With each, the expert presenters will share practical advice on how to avoid such mistakes.
