When problems arise in complex construction projects, owners may turn to designers and engineers, as well as and their professional liability insurance policies, for recourse. A number of recent high-profile cases have demonstrated the complexities of the owner-engineer relationship and the costs to both parties and insurers when a project goes awry. This webinar will discuss lessons learned from case studies and suggest how all parties in a construction project can structure and manage a project at the front end to avoid litigation and insurance claims at the back end. Issues discussed will include:
- Choosing design-bid-build or design-build to manage unique project risks
- The role of the engineer, and the risks associated with an engineer playing multiple roles
- Coordinating design from multiple sources on a project
- Procuring the right management expertise for your project
- Contingencies and allocation of risks at the front end versus insurance at the back end
- How external economic factors can impact your project
The intended audience for this presentation is owners, developers, construction and project managers, engineers and architects, contractors and construction consultants.
