Course Description

This program was recorded on April 28, 2020

This course will focus on the four areas that must be addressed in every construction plan but are often ignored by counsel. While many focus on traditional legal concepts like indemnity and basic dispute resolution often defaulting to preprinted forms, there are critical areas that should not be solely left to the client. These include addressing scope, time, cost, and quality concepts and how they relate to one another consistent with other contract documents issued by other project participants.

  1. Most construction disputes involve scope issues; what is in and what isn’t. Is this just left to the client and its design consultants? Typical language used in many “standard” contracts fail to adequately address the issues that commonly arise;
  2. Most disputes also involve late delivery of all or critical milestones. How is this addressed to minimize these disputes?
  3. Anyone who has been involved in a construction project knows that budgets are rarely met. Why is this? Can counsel mitigate budget issues?
  4. In today’s world of complicated project delivery, and limited resources, how can counsel help mitigate the substantial costs of dealing with quality issues and the often significant costs of resolving these disputes?
