All construction projects and many professional services contracts have change issues, some have claims, and a few go all the way to disputes. Riding an issue through these processes can be challenging and stressful at the best of times, but when contractual procedures are not followed due to unfamiliarity the challenges and problems can grow exponentially. Unfortunately, relatively few project teams properly implement these important contractual procedures.

This presentation includes overviews of the general changes-claims-disputes process for professional services contracts and construction contracts, particularly relative to the widely-used standard contract documents of the Engineers Joint Contract Documents Committee (EJCDC) and the American Institute of Architects (AIA), and sets forth best practices for managing changes, claims, and disputes aimed at getting everyone out of the proverbial woods with the fewest scars, and with reputations reasonably intact.

Learning Objectives:

  • Explain how a change issue progresses to a dispute
  • Identify the differences between changes, claims and disputes
  • Describe typical change procedures
  • Identify how to handle construction claims
  • Explain alternative methods of dispute resolution and ADR resources
