Upcoming WPL Webinar to Examine Loss of Productivity Disputes in the Construction Industry

Share Article

This interactive webinar is designed to benefit attorneys and consultants who specialize in construction disputes as well as construction project managers, superintendents, and foremen. The event may be of special interest to professionals involved with trades that, because of the nature and scheduling of their work, are disproportionately affected by losses of productivity.

WPL Publishing later this month will sponsor a webinar that is designed to help construction professionals recognize and handle problems involving loss of productivity in their projects.

During the event, expert speakers will familiarize attendees with various methods of quantifying losses of productivity, or “inefficiencies.” The 90-minute event, entitled “Loss of Productivity Disputes: Stakeholder Responsibilities and Liabilities,” is scheduled for Tuesday, April 26, 2011, at 1:00 p.m. (EDT).

Besides identification of productivity losses, speakers also will discuss possible actions and approaches worth considering when productivity loss becomes evident. Minimizing a schedule and cost impact resulting from a productivity loss also will be addressed.

Specifically, the webinar will focus on the following areas:

  • Determining what is loss of productivity (output versus input; plan versus actual).
  • Establishing and measuring loss of productivity.
  • What are some of the root causes and immediate causes of loss of productivity?
  • In what forms does loss of productivity manifest itself?
  • Determining responsibility for losses of productivity.

The speakers will share what they have learned from extensive experience in loss of productivity analysis, including what is necessary to establish the "cause and effect" tie. Webinar attendees will learn how previous disputes evolved and how those disputes played out and were resolved among the stakeholders. The speakers also will address which methods to quantify productivity loss are preferred among dispute-resolution forums and courts.

Addressing webinar attendees will be Fritz Marth and Peter Vosbikian of the Greyhawk construction consulting firm. Fritz has 20 years of experience in construction and construction program management specializing in construction disputes and claims resolution, critical path method scheduling and delay analysis, and litigation support. Peter is a senior claims consultant for Greyhawk and has 15 years of experience in engineering, construction, and claims analysis, including contract administration, cost and quality control, field inspection, CPM scheduling, delay analysis, loss of productivity analysis, issue analysis, and litigation support.

Following their presentations, there will be an interactive 10-to-15 minute question-and-answer session addressing relevant topics.

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/46ffyjx.
