About the Topic: A Loss Prevention Case Study Workshop
Case study of a real project that turned into a $20 million claim arising from a defective wall system. It highlights a prime architect, its interior design and mechanical subconsultants in the development of multimillion dollar hotel complex on a university campus.
- Study an actual claim to identify the sources of risk and actions that could have mitigated the situation;
- Consider how poor communication can lead to project disputes;
- Explore the breakdowns in business practices that led to the claim and learn strategies to avoid such error;
