Attend this webinar to learn how project controls professionals can add value to the DRB process and help contribute to dispute resolution on many projects as members of Dispute Resolution Boards.
Why Should You Attend:
Although the Dispute Resolution Boards (DRBs) came into the U.S. construction industry in the 1970s, many in the industry are not familiar with these Boards or the DRB process. The webinar discusses the history, effectiveness and cost of this alternative dispute resolution (ADR) process. The webinar summarizes the typical DRB process. Project controls professionals (schedulers, estimators, cost control professionals) have long participated in the DRB process by assisting clients with preparation for or presentations at dispute hearings. Traditionally, Dispute Boards have been made up of an owner, a contractor, and a design professional or specialty consultant depending upon the nature of the project. The webinar explores whether experienced project controls professionals can help make Dispute Boards more effective. It identifies ways that project controls professionals can add value to the DRB process and help contribute to dispute resolution on many projects as members of Dispute Resolution Boards.
