In less than a week, WPL Publishing will hold a webinar to help various professionals within the construction community understand and address issues involving the damages that come from delays, inefficiency, and acceleration in their projects.
There are real costs to every member of the project team associated with delays, inefficiencies and project acceleration. For contractors and subcontractors, these problems mean higher overhead, labor, and equipment costs. For owners and developers, these problems mean higher administrative costs and real impacts to the economic viability of a project. The webinar will focus on practical examples and case studies to show simple and successful approaches for documenting and calculating the damages that come from delay, inefficiency, and project acceleration. The program’s speaker, Trauner Consulting Services Inc. Principal J. Scott Lowe, will discuss common contract provisions governing these topics as well as frequent misconceptions and mistakes. To register for the 90-minute program, scheduled for Tuesday, Sept. 24, 2013, at 1:00 p.m. (EDT), visit http://tinyurl.com/ltum4lp.
The webinar, entitled “Calculating the Damages of Delay, Inefficiency and Acceleration,” will do the following:
- Set the stage by briefly introducing the concepts of delay, inefficiency, and project acceleration.
- Focus on the costs of delay, presenting the information by party and cost component.
- Review the costs of inefficiency.
- Review the costs of acceleration.
- Introduce contract provisions that address the pricing of delay, inefficiencies, and acceleration.
- Examine proper documentation of costs.
- Address the timely notification of costs.
- Assess presentation of damages.
Lowe’s expertise lies in the areas of critical path method scheduling, construction claim preparation and evaluation, dispute resolution, technical document development, contract administration, and cost analysis. He has directed and performed virtually all types of analyses, including delay, productivity, and efficiency, including cost and the determination of damages, on various projects throughout the United States and abroad. On many occasions, he has provided expert testimony at deposition, arbitration, and trial.
Following Mr. Lowe’s presentation, 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/ltum4lp.
