Most owners and contractors are aware of different types of claims – change, differing site conditions, suspension of work, acceleration, and termination claims. While most are aware of the direct costs associated with these claims, many are not familiar with the concept of impact damages and how these damages are additive to the direct and the delay costs arising from claims.
This session identifies legitimate impact damages and some “claim games” centering on impact damages – how to identify these and how to defend against them. Attendees will become familiar with some suggested defenses against such games – some of which require contract language while others are more pragmatic. The intent of the session is to advise project participants on how to resolve impact damages on the site and not in the courtroom.
Join this session by expert speaker James G. Zack, where he will explain the Ins and Outs of impact damages, how to prepare legitimate impact damage claims, and how to analyze such claims.
