Today’s construction projects are highly complex, and present an array of challenging risks and obligations for all stakeholders. A comprehensive understanding of key issues and the potential exposure to liability in this high-stakes area is essential.
In this unique, intensive, five-day certificate course, now in its seventh year, over 20 senior legal and construction professionals will cover what you need to know from contract formation through to dispute resolution. Topics include the key participants and their roles in various forms of project delivery; different types of construction contracts in general use; bidding and tendering; the liability of the design professional; liens and trusts; recurrent claims issues, including unanticipated site conditions and disputes concerning changes; alternative approaches to quantifying and evaluating delay and impact claims; dispute resolution, including mediation and arbitration; construction insurance; bonding and surety issues; delays; and construction health and safety risk management.
Participants will develop a thorough understanding of the core legal issues impacting construction projects today, and will come away better equipped to minimize exposure to costly risk.
