WPL Publishing Co., Inc., publisher of Construction Pro Network (featuring Construction Claims Advisor), announces a valuable interactive webinar

Consideration of Claims Issues
in the Creation and Update of Schedule

Wednesday, October 30, 2013  ♦  1:00-2:30 PM EDT

Presented by:
J. Kimon Yiasemides and Zeynep Guven
Warner Construction Consultants, Inc.

Determining the impact of delays on a construction project is all too often only performed in the retrospective. Full consideration of claims issues while updating the project schedule, and even as early as during the creation of the baseline schedule, should be performed for many reasons. Substandard or inadequate schedule updates can severely hinder the development of delay claims and the resolution of disputes. To amplify the power of your schedule as a claims support tool, there are certain considerations that should be taken into account in developing the baseline and updating the schedule.

This webinar will discuss the aspects to consider, and the best practices to implement, so that the project schedule may be a claims-support tool, as well as a claims-avoidance tool. These considerations are important from the project owner’s perspective, as well as the contractor’s.

This information-packed, 90-minute webinar program will help you:

  • Understand the importance of, and the best practices in, implementing supportive aspects of later-occurring claims issues when developing a baseline schedule
  • Update your monthly schedules so that claims are more defensible
  • Demonstrate an impact to your schedule through the use of monthly updates
  • Properly use narratives and fragnets in monthly updates
  • Navigate other strategic practices and considerations involved
  • And much, much more!

Attend this webinar to gain the fundamentals of these important scheduling practices. You will leave this event knowing how not to get stuck on an impacted project without a way to properly demonstrate that impact.

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