Who should attend?
This seminar is intended for all construction project participants (owners, contractors, consultants), such as project managers, construction managers, schedulers, cost controllers, construction superintendents, safety managers, and project coordinators to help them get a better understanding of their roles and obligations under the construction contract; thereby avoid critical situations and claims that may result into major losses to their companies.
A recent research study in North America concluded that more than 80% of the construction project participants DO NOT READ the contract. With basic knowledge in contract law, you should not need a lawyer to answer questions like: “are you able to stop the construction work if you do not get paid on time by your client?”, “can you say no to a change directive issued by your client’s consultant?”, “are you able to stop paying your contractor/subs due to performance issues?”, “as a supplier, when can you withdraw from a bid without recourse”, “as a buyer, how can you cancel a bid without getting sued?”, “as a consultant, are you responsible for errors due to faulty designs not prepared by you?”, “who owns the copyrights of a design, the client or the consultant?”, “what are your remedies as a third party suffering damage under the tort law?”, “how can you ensure that your subcontractors will not bail on you as you depend on their prices in fixing your bid price?”, and “how to define the best strategies to avoid construction liens?”
