Speaker: Howard Wise, Goodmans LLP
This session will focus on:
Over the past few years, the use of Design Build Agreements has increased significantly. From Infrastructure Projects, Commercial Construction and Manufacturing Projects, General Contractors are undertaking more design build projects. With this monumental shift in building delivery methods, new opportunities and new risks arise.
Hear from one of Canada’s leading construction experts on the following topics: the design build agreement between the owner and the contractor – who is at risk?; the contractor’s relationship with the design consultant – what are the parameters?; change orders in the design build setting – do they exist?; insurance risks; dealing with disputes regarding design; and dealing with disputes regarding construction.
