Differing Site Conditions on Washington State Construction Projects and Ways to Allocate Economic Risk Associated with These Conditions

Speaker: Colm Nelson

Unexpected site conditions can be the most frustrating, difficult and expensive problems to overcome on a construction project. Oftentimes, existing utilities are marked in the wrong location on plans, underground boulders are larger than the geotechnical report indicated and soils are more saturated than tests had revealed. Because differing site conditions can result in enormous expense and delays, it is important for any party to a construction contract to fully understand their economic risks associated with such conditions. 

Join us for the next webinar in our ongoing series focusing on pertinent construction topics and updates. This webinar, presented by Foster Pepper attorney Colm Nelson, will discuss the common law doctrines and specific contract mechanisms for shifting risk associated with differing site conditions in Washington state, and common reasons why differing site conditions claims fail. 

CLE (attorney) credits pending.
