Warner Webinar – Consideration of Claims in Schedule Updates

Join Warner’s Consultants Kimon Yiasemides and Zeynep Guven at 1pm on October 29, 2015 on ConstructionPro Network as they present on the consideration of claims issues in the creation and update of schedules.

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. Strategies and best practices that can be used to amplify the power of your schedule as a claims support tool will be explained in developing the baseline and updating the schedule as Kimon and Zeynep present their webinar.
