The objective of this course is therefore not only to provide exhaustive knowledge that needs constantly to be kept up to date, but also to stress that electronic activities lend themselves to a methodical approach.

Special emphasis is placed on pre-construction language that can be incorporated in all contracts, subcontracts and purchase orders that aligns all trades in a common dispute resolution methodology, minimizing delays and costs. The use of Expanded Dispute Review Boards coupled with Construction Settlement Panels is emphasized for large projects as the most efficient and effective In-House means of controlling disputes and minimizing impacts to project costs and scheduling. Other means of dispute resolution are presented that apply to projects already underway or completed, but with disputes that still have not been resolved.Suitable for: Commercial, Industrial, Public works, Attorneys.
