Construction Phase and Beyond
Episode III: Operation Build


In this, the third of our three-part series, learn how to get what you paid for. That means knowing what you paid for in terms of the responsibilities of the design pro’s and construction team. It means knowing how to document unsatisfactory performance, knowing when to pay the money, and how not to pay more than you owe. Termination, warranties, construction claims, change orders, time extensions, final payment, and bond claims are all essential concepts we cover in this training.


Learn how to get what you paid for, handle designer/contractor turf wars, change orders, and delays.

Learn bond claim essentials and strategies to avoid disputes and construction defects.
