Assessment of Major International Variations, Delay, Disruption & Acceleration Claims
This 60 minute webinar, followed by Q&A examines the key commercial issues facing contractors and employers in the international engineering and construction market in relation to the evaluation of variations and claims for delay, disruption and acceleration.
The presentation is overlaid with in-depth research from the HKA 2019 CRUX report. The CRUX report is an annual Thought Leadership Publication which provides the engineering and construction industry with valuable insight into causation of claims and disputes from major capital projects HKA has worked on from around the world.
The 2019 CRUX report is based on the analysis of 4,105 causes of dispute on major 700 projects in 72 countries which HKA worked on between January 2017 to the end of August 2019 with a combined capital expenditure in excess of US$1.2 trillion.
