In a construction environment where the prevailing sentiment is often ‘more for less’, taking the time to fully understand your client’s requirements for their project, their budget and their desired timeframe is more crucial than ever. Yet with increasingly condensed project timetables and a desire to simply ‘get it done’, there is sometimes insufficient time allowed for this important process. A robust and timely briefing process allows design decisions to be made with proper research and consideration, reduces the risk of variation and extension of time disputes, and helps avoid performance failures that lead to expensive claims.
Join us for our first webinar for 2020, in which informed Risk Managers, Wendy Poulton and Natalie Sullivan will examine why briefing matters. Issue to be discussed include:
• The benefits of a good brief
• Some factors leading to poor briefing on projects
• Your legal obligations in relation to briefing
• Case studies in this area of practice which illustrate the expensive problems that can arise from small lapses in the briefing process.
