After participating in this course, you will be able to:
- Develop your ability to make sound professional judgements as you learn more about your role and responsibilities
- Consider contractor perceptions about interpretation and enforcement issues
- Apply your knowledge of the details of construction contracts, such as “or-equal” provisions, change requests and claims, time provisions and pricing of changes
- Explain the role of the inspection authority to accept or reject
- Avoid overly strict or untimely interpretation, which often leads to contractor claims against owners – an uncomfortable situation for you as a design/construction professional
- Recognize laxity in interpretation and how it can hurt owners who end up getting less for their money’s worth
Ambiguous contract documents, improper interpretations, delayed decisions and wrongful enforcement are the occurrences that bedevil construction projects and result in owners not getting full value of their money and being stuck with costly construction claims. What happens when interpretation and/or enforcement is too strict or too lax? Is there a correct balance? This seminar enhances understanding of the many details of multifaceted contract documents and focuses on developing skills for making a balanced and fair interpretation and enforcement which can result in reduced cost to the owner.
- To increase understanding of the role and responsibilities of the construction team members so that they appropriately interpret and enforce contracts
- To enable the owners to receive full value of the money and protect them from unnecessary claims by developing skills to strike the right balance between strict and lax interpretation and enforcement of contracts
Who Should Attend
Owners, contractors, engineers, architects, designers, project managers, operation managers, client service managers and contract administrators who observe, review or supervise construction contractor performance or otherwise administer construction contracts, whether in private practice or on owners’ staff.
