Negotiating for Construction Project Management

Negotiation and contract administration skills drive success in construction projects

Program Description:

Due to unexpected conditions, delays, and other unforeseen events, contract change orders are sometimes unavoidable. If a change order is unresolved, it can lead to claims and disruption to the team’s successful project completion. To help ensure project success, the parties negotiating change orders should be skilled in negotiation and contract administration insights. Participants in the Negotiating for Construction Project Management seminar are provided with the intellectual tools to understand, plan, and negotiate contract change orders, employing the highly successful mutual interests negotiation approach to maintain positive project team relationships. Using case studies relevant to your projects, participants engage with proven strategies that prepare them to effectively negotiate future change orders. Project owner, contractor, designer, and change manager perspectives will be addressed. With 35 years of experience in the design and construction industry, the faculty instructor is an expert in construction project management, contract negotiation, change order negotiations, and claim avoidance. He provides legal advisory services to engineering and scientific professional service firms, owners, and contractors. He is also a claims manager underwritten by Lloyd’s of London, developing and implementing industry-leading risk management programs. This customized TNI seminar will help participants negotiate productively through the complex process of contract change orders. Participants will be able to immediately put to use the negotiating skills, tactics, and knowledge they have learned upon returning to the workplace.
