Workshop Description

This comprehensive and practical 2-day workshop introduces the participants to the concepts, principals, and application of claim management for construction projects.

The workshop is delivered though lectures, class discussions, individual and group case studies, and exercises. The first day ends with a case study, an example of Contractor’s claim for extra and a delay claim and how to address them. The second day end a discussion of participant’s claims and how to resolve them. The workshop will help participants to understand and to develop and to apply what they have learned on a real-life design and construction project.


Workshop Objective

 The objective is to provide an understanding and appreciation of construction claims, how they arise and how to prevent them. This will help participants reduce claims and maximize opportunities of resolving them amicably without turning into a dispute. Upon completion, participants will be able to actively prevent claims and minimize disputes. The practical approach of this workshop makes the participant’s goal to reduce disputes much easier and more manageable.

Participants will specifically be able to:

  • Describe different types of claims and claim sources.
  • Differentiate causes of claims and how to prevent them.
  • Explain practical guidelines for prevention and avoidance of claims.
  • Demonstrate different ways to conduct claim analysis, review, and evaluation.
  • Choose the best claim resolution approach.
  • Use practical alternatives and solutions for claims prevention.
  • Apply claim prevention techniques.

This workshop is an excellent opportunity for new and intermediate project managers and project team members. The workshop is also intended for anyone who is involved in the design, tendering and implementation of construction projects and wishes to learn more about claim prevention such as owners, contractors, consultants, and contract administrators.
