Warner Webinar – tune in Oct. 30!

On Wednesday, October 30, 2013, Warner’s consultants J. Kimon Yiasemides and Zeynep Guven will be presenting a webinar on “Consideration of Claims Issues in the Creation and Update of Schedules”. For more information and to register, please see Construction Pro Network at

This webinar will discuss the aspects for both contractors and owners to consider, and the best practices to implement, so that the project schedule may be a claims-support tool, as well as a claims-avoidance tool.

In the webinar we will discuss how determining the impact of delays on a construction project is all too often only performed in the retrospective. Full consideration of claims issues while updating the project schedule, and even as early as during the creation of the baseline schedule, should be performed for many reasons. Substandard or inadequate schedule updates can severely hinder the development of delay claims and the resolution of disputes. To amplify the power of your schedule as a claims support tool, there are certain considerations that should be taken into account in developing the baseline and updating the schedule. This and more will be explored during the webinar.
