Discover How Loss of Productivity Can Affect Your Bottomline Results
More and more construction claims are including a loss of productivity component these days. But too often the claimed amount is not properly substantiated or presented. Loss of Productivity Disputes — New Developments on an Expensive and Tricky Issue will help you understand what makes for a good productivity claim, its strengths, weaknesses and how to respond.
Speaker was well informed and did a good job of explaining a very complicated issue.
And loss of productivity is often the reason for other claim elements, such as delay, acceleration and extended overhead. Understanding the loss of productivity claim’s strengths and weaknesses will thus help you evaluate other types of claims as well. Participants in this seminar will learn the latest technical and legal concepts associated with loss of productivity along with these other critical issues:
- What is productivity? Why is it important? How should it be measured?
- What guidelines, methods, and tools are commonly used to measure loss of productivity? When can loss of productivity claims be asserted? What types of documentation should accompany the claim?
- How do the courts and appeal boards view loss of productivity?
- What contractual provisions can be used to present and support loss of productivity claims, and which can be used to rebut them?
- Additional topics related to loss of productivity – scheduling, accounting and false claims – will also be addressed
- And much, much more!
