In less than two weeks, a webinar sponsored by WPL Publishing will provide professionals within the construction community practical tips and techniques for the proper handling of change-order claims involving their projects.

The need to make changes on a construction project is a matter of practical reality. Even the most thoughtfully planned project may necessitate changes due to defective or ambiguous plans and specifications, differing site conditions, specified methods of construction becoming unfeasible, etc. Excessive change orders threaten the timely and cost-effective completion of a project and can lead to expensive and protracted litigation. The webinar is designed to help attendees avoid problems of this sort in their projects. To register for the 90-minute event, scheduled for Wednesday, April 30, 2014, at 1:00 p.m. (EDT), visit http://tinyurl.com/pnhdfar.

The webinar, entitled “Change Orders: The Key to a Successful Project,” is intended to help attendees accomplish the following:

  • Recognize the causes of construction change.
  • Identify typical change-order concepts and types of changes.
  • Understand notice requirements.
  • Implement best practices for administration of a change.
  • Comprehend claim entitlement.
  • Formulate pricing methodology.
  • Prove delay and impact.
  • Avoid or resolve change-order claims and disputes.

Addressing attendees will be Mary Salamone, a partner in the Orange County, Calif., office of Atkinson, Andelson, Loya, Ruud & Romo. She has dedicated her 27-year career exclusively to the specialized area of construction law. Her practice involves various issues from conception to completion of a project. She has represented a wide variety of professionals in the building industry on both public and private works of improvements, affording her a unique perspective to assist in understanding and resolving claims. She has handled multi-million-dollar disputes on high-profile, complex construction projects involving airports, dams, hospitals, hotels, detention facilities, and sports venues.

Following Ms. Salamone’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/pnhdfar.
