This course gives an overview of the nature of construction disputes and the various options of dispute resolution processes for construction projects.
Construction projects comprise a diversity of interests of many parties including the developer, main contractor, sub-contractors and professionals which interact to create a completed project. Inevitably, over time, there can be disputes and disagreement about the interpretation of terms and conditions of the contracts including indemnity clause, extension of time and progressive payments, etc. If not resolved in time, the disputes and disagreement can become very costly in terms of time lost, opportunity costs, legal costs, etc.
It is inevitable during the life of a project that changes will happen. When these changes occur they usually result in an increase in cost and time for which the Contractor will want to be reimbursed. This seminar will set out how to produce a claim for Time and Cost with focus on the types and content of claims, instructions, what are changes and variation orders, claims concerning time and what happens after the submission of claims.
