There always seem to be excuses for not being able to prove that a problem has caused the contractor to be inefficient. Owners often rightly complain that contractors don’t document the problem. Contractors often rightly complain that owner’s documentation expectation can be unreasonable. And both parties often refuse to acknowledge the legitimate concerns and limitations under which the other operates. This webinar will explore these issues using case studies of real projects, showing how the difficulties associated with documenting and evaluating inefficiency and how the problems illustrated by the case study can be avoided. Several case studies are employed on a variety of projects dealing with issues associated with quantifying inefficiencies in construction.
