In spite of even the best pre-construction site investigations, one can never know everything about the conditions of a particular site.  This is especially true for those conditions that may be hidden below the surface of a structure or below the ground itself. This webinar will cover such unknown, or differing, site conditions, what to do when they are encountered, and what rights may exist  regarding recovery of costs in this regard.

Areas Covered

This webinar will define and discuss the history of what are commonly termed as Type 1 and Type 2 differing site conditions.  We will look at some examples of each Type, and discuss how the costs associated with such differing conditions may be recovered.  We will also explore what an Owner or Engineer can do to minimize its exposure for differing site conditions claims.

Learning Objectives

By attending this webinar, the attendee will develop a fundamental understanding of:

  • The two Types of Differing Site Conditions
  • What an Owner, Designer, and Contractor can do to proactively minimize the risk of encountering Differing Site Conditions
  • How a Contractor can best address differing site conditions when encountered
  • How to capture the cost damages associated with Differing Site Conditions
  • How an Owner and Designer can minimize their exposure to damages claims resulting from Differing Site Conditions
  • And much more.

Who Should Attend

  • Construction Project Managers
  • Construction Company Executives
  • Trade Contractor Executives and Field Managers
  • Project Owners
  • Construction Attorneys
  • Architects and Engineers Involved in Construction
