Engineers and Contractors are human and therefore make mistakes.  In large construction projects mistakes and miscommunication can have serious, sometimes disastrous, consequences.  HFW and Exponent invite you to a joint seminar to present on the following topics:

  • Real-life stories of mistakes and miscommunication and the lessons that can be learnt from them
  • Consequences of mistakes and miscommunications on the duration and cost of the projects and what contractors can do to minimise these
  • Contract drafting issues and case studies in relation to defects
  • Defences available to Contractors for defect claims
  • Legal principles and case law on quantum of defect claims
