Details :

Money and time are two of the most important matters in construction projects.

As such, successful management of compensation events under NEC contracts is fundamental.  The parties’ failures to adhere to the prescribed timeframes of NEC contracts, or a fundamental misunderstanding of the contract provisions, would lead to conflict.

In this seminar, the speaker will discuss the change management process and how identify, manage and assess the compensation events.  The speaker will also share with the participants how to apply the principles in case studies.
