Why Should You Attend:
The contract has been awarded and notice to proceed issued. The contractor has started work. The owner issues a suspension of work directive and the contractor shuts down all or a designated portion of their work awaiting the return to work order. The contractor believes they are entitled to recover all delay and all time related delay damages. Is the contractor, right? Is the owner on the hook for all delay damages? As Max E. Greenberg commented in 1984 – “It ain’t necessarily so!” This webinar examines why owners must have a suspension of work clause in their contracts and how these clauses work. It identifies what damages are typically owed when an owner stops all or part of the work and outlines some typical limitations of suspension damages found in many contracts. Additionally, the webinar discusses five key court cases decided between 1996 and 2015 that set forth key requirements necessary to collect damages arising from a suspension of work directive. Finally, the webinar offers recommendations on what actions contractors take to protect the recovery of such damages and why these actions may help owners resolve such claims in the field rather than the courtroom.
