Construction projects are complex undertakings involving many parties, and it is not uncommon for problems or claims to arise during or after the construction work is complete. How you handle those situations can make the difference between a successful and an unsuccessful project.

Join Barnes & Thornburg and Wiss, Janney, Elstner Associates for an informative program that will discuss ways you can plan for and avoid problems, as well as ways you can investigate and resolve problems if they do arise. Specific topics will include:

  • Tips for negotiating construction contracts and solutions to avoid frequently litigated provisions, including delay & disruption claims 
  • How to proactively avoid common problems such as water leakage, condensation, organic growth, and building envelope distress in buildings 
  • How to investigate problems and design and implement effective repairs 
  • How to approach and resolve construction defect claims and disputes, including with respect to alternative dispute resolution methods and important insurance coverage issues

The program will also include case studies related to:

  • Investigation and litigation of the John Hancock building scaffold collapse (this accident affected the owner, architect, general contractor and subcontractors) 
  • Investigation, litigation and trial of the Chicago Post Office construction collapse (this accident affected the structural engineer, general contractor and subcontractors)
