  • + (11-30-2017) - Delays in Construction Contracts – Protecting Against Delay Damages and How to Recover Your Losses

    +EVENTS DETAILS

    Time: Nov 30th, 2017 | 12:00 pm to 02:00 pm
    Class Description: One of the greatest financial risks for contractors on a construction project are schedule delays. A contractor may incur internal cost overruns as well as face liability exposure to the project owner. It is common in construction contracts for contractors to be assessed damages for late completion. Frequently these deductions are assessed as d "liquidated damages". As a construction contractor, your work can be delayed for reasons beyond your control. If this happens, you want to make sure your interests are protected, liability is limited and that you can recover your losses. In order to do so, you will need to ensure that their contract limits the impacts of damages for delay and late performance. This luncheon is specifically designed for construction contractors. Participants will gain valuable insight on delay clauses including: scheduling requirements, delay damages, no-damage-for-delay clauses, liquidated damages, as well as how to manage the risk of delays through contract negotiations with the owner and maximize your chance of recovery for such delays.
