Washington, DC (PRWEB) June 09, 2011
In one week, experts speaking at a WPL Publishing webinar will discuss key strategies that construction professionals can use to address their projects’ delay, disruption, and schedule impact claims.
The webinar is designed to help attendees understand critical contract requirements related to planning and scheduling, analyze and identify the cause of actual or potential delays, and prove and/or defend delay and disruption claims. The interactive event also is expected to help them preserve contract rights and remedies related to delays and disruptions as well as avoid civil and criminal risks in the pursuit of delay damages.

Delays and disruptions have become a greater threat to project success under current tight market conditions, thin margins, and strained project budgets. All stakeholders face increasing pressure to complete projects on-time and on-budget. Compounding the challenges of the current economy, project participants often are confronted with demanding contract terms, onerous federal requirements that accompany projects funded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, and other legal developments that must be considered in dealing with the risks of project delays.
Successful project management demands that industry professionals more closely plan, monitor, and analyze construction progress, the impact of design changes, weather issues, and other factors that might increase the risk of delays and unexpected costs.
The webinar, entitled “Strategies for Dealing with Delay, Disruption and Schedule Impact Claims in 2011,” also will examine the critical lessons of cases issued by courts within the past year concerning common contract terms governing delays, time extensions, liquidated damages, and the implementation of scheduling specifications.
Addressing attendees will be Thomas Fertitta, founder of the construction consulting services company TDF LLC, and Akerman Senterfitt LLP shareholder Jeffrey Gilmore.
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/6c8bgru.
