Key Take Away:

This construction claims webinar will help to identify what actions owners and contractors can take, when some of the warning signs are observed, to resolve such potential construction claims and disputes.


It is axiomatic that claims and disputes on a project do not simply appear out of nowhere. Experience indicates that when a dispute occurs, there is normally a back story or history of events, decisions, lack of decisions, etc. that can be traced back from a few weeks to several years that gave rise to the dispute.

It is typically these past events or decisions that are identified as the “early warning signs” of claims and disputes. Typically, it is only when claims are filed at the end of a project that attorneys and construction claims consultants review project documentation and interview the project team in order identify these construction claims management warnings. And, in retrospect, many project team members comment “If only I had received construction claims training!” Research reveals there is little literature setting forth a detailed list of early warning signs of pending construction delay claims and construction disputes.

Based on the collective observations of Navigant’s Global Construction Practice the Forum collated these early warning signs into the typical phases of a project including:

Bid or Proposal Phase
Initial Contract Phase
Construction Phase
