Within one week, WPL Publishing will host a webinar to provide various types of professionals within the construction industry valuable advice about pricing design deficiency claims.

Preparing a successful design calls for a unique combination of scientific and technical expertise, and accomplishing it in a perfect manner is difficult, if not impossible. As such, it is common for construction projects to experience changes to the work resulting from professional design deficiencies. The liability for such claims arising from design deficiencies generally is aimed against the designer on the basis that it failed to satisfy its contractual obligation to provide a design that met the expectations and requirements of the owner. The webinar offers insight into pricing and apportioning the costs associated with defects of this sort. To register for the 90-minute webinar, scheduled for Thursday, Feb. 27, 2014, at 1:00 p.m. (EST), visit http://tinyurl.com/l4p6t6h.

The webinar, entitled “Pricing Design Deficiency Claims: Keys to Success,” is designed to help attendees accomplish the following, among other things:

  • Identify design defects.
  • Evaluate who is responsible for paying for a change.
  • Identify considerations for calculating an assessment against a designer.
  • Become familiar with contract language addressing design defects.
  • Know some of the key industry publications on design defects.
  • Implement sample calculations for determining design defect assessments.

Addressing attendees will be Peter Vosbikian, a shareholder and managing consultant with Greyhawk. He is a qualified trial expert in schedule delay analysis and damages. He has more than 20 years of experience in construction, civil engineering, and construction program management, specializing in construction dispute and claims resolution, construction advisory and claims avoidance, Critical Path Method scheduling and delay analysis, cost analysis, loss-of-productivity analysis, and litigation support services. He has provided and managed construction claims services on commercial buildings, infrastructure projects, government facilities, and industrial plants, including stadiums, sports arenas, airports, process and power plants, wastewater treatment facilities, hotels, and other structures.

Following Mr. Vosbikian’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/l4p6t6h.
