WPL Publishing Co., Inc., publisher of Construction Claims Advisor and ConstructionPro Network, announces a valuable new interactive webinar:  

Weather Planning on Construction Projects:
Addressing Delays and Time Extensions — Dealing with Sandy 

Wednesday, December 19, 2012
1:00-2:30 PM EST

Presented by:
J. Scott Lowe, P.E., Principal
Trauner Consulting Services, Inc.

Estimates of the economic losses caused by Hurricane Sandy recently reached $50 billion after experts assessed the costs of severe property damage, shut-down subways and power outages. Hurricane Sandy's recent devastation along much of the East Coast is a reminder of the significant factor weather can contribute to the planning and execution of a construction project.

Weather conditions can wreak havoc on project schedules and the calculation of time extensions. Preparing and scheduling your projects for weather conditions can help you avoid, or at least minimize, delay claims.

This informative, 90-minute program will help you:

  • Execute the best contract for your project -- AIA, ConsensusDocs, Federal Government, or a typical DOT.
  • Discover the right technique to calculate delay -- contemporaneous analysis versus time impact analysis.
  • Understand critical path and float methods.
  • Review time extensions for the super storm itself.
  • Become conversant with time extensions for knock-on effects -- clean up, recovery, power losses, etc.
  • Learn how to deal with time extensions that will push work over the winter as a result of Sandy.
  • Anticipate how to address acceleration, both constructive and directed.
  • Understand how to deal with damages -- weather is traditionally non-compensable unless compensable delays pushed the project into the period when Sandy hit.
  • And much, much more!

In addition, a 10-to-15 minute period has been reserved at the end of the speaker's presentation for an interactive question-and-answer session so you can discuss specific issues or gain additional knowledge about topics discussed.
