WPL Publishing later this month will sponsor a webinar that will examine effective approaches for calculating and analyzing damages resulting from delay, disruption, and wrongful termination in construction projects.
The 90-minute webinar, scheduled for Wednesday, April 28, 2010, at 1:00 (EDT), will feature Sage Construction Consulting's Bill Schwartzkopf, author of the treatises "Calculating Construction Damages" and "Calculating Lost Labor Productivity in Construction Claims." He will discuss the importance of a detailed analysis that uses actual cost records and provide various examples to illustrate the calculation of damages.
The interactive event is suited for owners, construction managers, contractors, subcontractors, consultants, engineers, and legal professionals. To register, visit http://tinyurl.com/y65a6pa.
Webinar participants are expected to learn how to analyze overruns and underruns in actual costs over budgeted costs as well as how to determine whether variances are consistent with the asserted causes of a contractor's damages.
Schwartzkopf additionally will address a wide range of methods for calculating damages. These methods involve actual costs, total costs, modified total costs, estimated costs, measured mile, and earned value. He also will advise on how to properly calculate extended field and home office overhead, labor and equipment escalation costs, actual productivity costs, acceleration costs, and damages due to loss of bonding capacity.
Schwartzkopf heads the national construction litigation practice at Denver-based Sage, a national consulting firm specializing in construction claims and contract surety defaults. He has appeared in various state and federal courts throughout the United States and in front of several arbitration panels and disputes review boards.
In addition, a 10-to-15 minute period has been reserved at the end of the presentation for an interactive question-and-answer session so that participants can discuss specific issues or gain additional knowledge about the topics discussed.
Webinar tuition is based on location, not number of participants, so each registration site can have multiple participants for one low price. To register, visit http://tinyurl.com/y65a6pa.
