Jeff Reitsma, MBA, PMP, P.Eng. will examine common cost and risk issues which we have seen arise over the course of remedial construction projects. As our team is often afforded a life-cycle view of an insurance event from emergency response through restoration and recovery, we have the ability to connect the dots between activities taken over the course of a file which can lead to significantly different outcomes for insured parties, insurers and restoration contractors. Specifically, we will review critical decision points & processes in the remedial construction process itself, related to:
• Impact assessment;
• Management and documentation of scope, schedule & budget;
• Contracts & dispute resolution; and
• Post-event litigation.
We will identify some common threads, tips and tricks, and issues to be mindful of -- regardless of the type of project -- to enable better outcomes on construction-related matters.
