Increased collaboration and communication in the early phases of a project helps avoid construction disputes, but even when employing best practices, the potential for claims exists on every construction project. Construction claims can take the form of requests for time, compensation, or other relief and may originate from any member of the project team. Identifying and managing construction claims—regardless as to who originates the claim—is critical to project success and maintaining quality customer, subcontractor, and supplier relationships. In this webinar, you will learn how to define, avoid, identify, communicate, and manage construction claims.
