We have developed the comprehensive framework of a training seminar entitled “Prevention and Resolution of Engineering and Construction Claims Through Effective Contracting, Contract Administration, Project Controls and Project Management,” which we provide for our clients’ management, engineering, and construction staff. 

We tailor our seminar to each client’s organizational structure, project execution style, and level of experience. The training seminar can be delivered in a one- or two-day format depending on our client’s needs.

Essential elements of our claims prevention training include:

  • Understanding the contract
  • Knowing the basic claim entitlements and avoiding them
  • Reviewing and approving of as-planned schedules and understanding schedule administration
  • Utilizing independent biddability/constructability reviews
  • Preparing quality contract documents
  • Implementing timely contract administration
  • Integrating cost and schedule control
  • Adhering to the contractual change management system
  • Requiring proper and thorough documentation
  • Documenting cause/effect of delays and increased costs
  • Mitigating claims during engineering and construction
  • Implementing periodic project reviews by senior management
  • Analyzing risks before signing contracts
  • Implementing an effective dispute resolution process

In addition to training, we have developed detailed checklists for use during project execution to better enable our clients’ management teams to manage and control their projects. Checklist topics include:

  • Bid preparation issues
  • Reviews and approvals of as-planned schedules and schedule updates
  • Site inspections prior to bidding
  • Project documentation
  • Problem identification and analysis
