Overview

This course is part of a four part webinar series entitled Web Series: Delivering Dispute Free Projects. Save 20% when you enroll for the series.

After participating in this webinar, you will:

  • Learn what owners, designers, and construction managers can do during the planning phase to avoid claims and mitigate disputes going forward.
  • Be exposed to what actions owners and their project teams can plan for to help avoid or mitigate claims during the construction phase.
  • Explore how the owner's team can avoid claims during a project's bidding phase.
  • Review what actions a bidder can take to mitigate claims during construction and avoid disputes.

Description:
Project owners, design professionals, construction managers, and contractors frequently ask for recommendations on how to avoid disputes on future construction projects. They acknowledge that there is no such thing as a "claim-free" project but are seeking ways to close out projects without resorting to arbitration or litigation at the end. This webinar is based on interviews with experienced practitioners in the construction industry.

This webinar factors in their experience, observations, and thinking. It will address the issues of claims mitigation and dispute avoidance issues during a project's planning, design and bidding phases. These three phases all too often lay the groundwork for future claims, claims that do not manifest themselves until construction is underway.

This webinar discusses actions that owners, designers and construction managers can take to help avoid claims during construction or, should they arise, resolve them on the project site and not in arbitration or litigation. This webinar identifies 9 actions owner project teams can take during the planning phase to help avoid claims during construction. The webinar continues with 28 actions owner teams can take during design to mitigate the potential for claims during construction.

The third portion of the webinar identifies 6 actions owners can take and 6 actions bidders can take to avoid later claims.
