Managing Construction Risk in 2020 and Beyond – The Pursuit of Success and the Art of Avoiding the Train Wreck

Jul 21, 2020 COVID-19 Resource Centre

July 21, 2020
11:30 am (ET) – 12:30 pm (ET)

Relationships that frame construction activity are key to a project’s success. Such relationships are sometimes born long before contract negotiation and sometimes last well past even hard fought litigation. Understanding how these relationships develop through contractual language, the construction process itself, and the resolution of disputes positions parties to allocate risk effectively, build strong relationships, and complete projects successfully. Living and working through COVID-19 has put a focus on this reality and has posed challenges to the construction industry that just might make the industry better going forward.

Join Jamie Virgin, Annik Forristal, and Jason J. Annibale of McMillan’s National Construction Group on Tuesday, July 21st for a spirited, if not provocative, consideration of how to manage risk, secure success, and avoid the train wreck of torched relationships and failed projects.

Presentation created for the ICRI Chapters of BC and Toronto, the ACI Chapters of BC, Ontario and Atlantic Canada, and the Atlantic Concrete Association.
