Washington, DC (PRWEB) April 01, 2013
Later this month, WPL Publishing will hold a webinar to help construction professionals document and analyze inefficiencies in their projects.
Webinar speaker and Trauner Consulting Services Inc. Director Mark Nagata will discuss a case study that examines an inefficiency claim involving a U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs hospital project in West Palm Beach, Fla. He will review the difficulties associated with documenting and evaluating inefficiency as well as how the problems illustrated by the case study can be avoided. The 90-minute event is scheduled for Thursday, April 11, 2013, at 1:00 p.m. (EDT). To register, visit http://tinyurl.com/d88zccg.
During the webinar, entitled “A Case Study: Documenting and Evaluating Inefficiency,” Nagata will do the following:
- Introduce the case study.
- Describe the judge’s decision in detail.
- Discuss the best approaches to the evaluation of inefficiency.
- Evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of the various approaches to the measurement of inefficiency, including the measured mile approach and the use of published factors.
- Discuss the challenges presented by any evaluation of inefficiency.
- Offer advice about how a similar dispute can be avoided.
Nagata, who recently became a member of Engineering News-Record’s “MidAtlantic Top 20 under 40,” provides construction-scheduling and claim-evaluation services to contractors and owners. He also regularly conducts seminars throughout the United States on various topics of interest to the construction industry, including claims avoidance and resolution, scheduling, specification writing, and alternative contracting methods. He has attended and participated in mediation and arbitration proceedings. In addition, he has published several articles on construction-related topics and is a contributing author to the Association for the Advancement of Cost Engineering International’s Recommended Practice for Forensic Schedule Analysis.
Following Mr. Nagata’s presentation, there will be an interactive 10-to-15 minute question-and-answer session addressing relevant topics.
