The 9th Contract and Risk Management for Construction and Capital Projects Conference comes to a close today in Houston. The event is being held at the Magnolia Hotel in downtown, Jan 15 – 16, 2020. Some big names are there, like Worley, Fluor, and Kiewit.
Being an engineer, I never really appreciated all the headaches that companies go through to keep the supply chain running smoothly. After a data sheet leaves my desk, there is so much to consider with regards to contracts and risk: manufacture the product, delivery time, clauses for failure to meet the contract product specification and delivery time, insurance, transportation to the site, etc. Here are some of the topics that were discussed.
- Strengthening Legal and Commercial Teams to Ensure Project Success
- Collaborating with Leadership Teams to Meet Agreements
- Enhancing Indemnity Clauses during Negotiation Process to Minimize
Challenges and Confusion
- Dealing with Concurrent Delay Claims on Large-Scale Projects
- Examining Key Factors in Moving from an Engineering, Procurement, and Construction Management (EPCM) Approach into the World of Full Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC)
- Exploring Both Sides of a Contract Negotiation to Uncover Best Tactics
