Lost Productivity Claims + Pricing Claims & Changes!
A 2-Part Live Webinar Series

Direct & Indirect · Inefficiency · Delay & Impact · Overhead

Change orders can cause a variety of direct and indirect costs on a project. The challenge is to both identify and quantify the various types of costs. Lost productivity is the trickiest, with contractors deploying a number of different methods, depending upon the situation and data available. The first of these two live webinars provides a comprehensive look at the various methods used to identify and price lost productivity claims. The second webinar details all the types of costs that might be recoverable and how to support or, if you're an owner, refute each cost type.

SPECIAL ALERT: Dr. Ibbs will provide a sneak peek at ASCE's forthcoming Standard for Identifying, Quantifying and Proving Loss of Productivity

Lost Productivity Claims: Identification, Measurement and Recovery

Wednesday, March 4, 2020
1:00 - 2:30 PM EST

Presented by:
William Ibbs and Paul Stynchcomb, Ibbs Consulting Group Inc.

More and more construction claims are including a loss-of-productivity component these days. But too often the claimed amount is not properly substantiated or presented. And loss of productivity is often the reason for other claim elements, such as delay, acceleration and extended overhead. Understanding what makes a good lost-productivity claim, its strengths and weaknesses, and how to respond will help you prepare, manage, analyze and negotiate them. Participants in this webinar will learn the latest technical and legal concepts associated with loss of productivity to help them:

  • Understand what productivity is and how it should be measured
  • Review guidelines, methods and tools commonly used to measure loss of productivity
  • Determine when loss-of-productivity claims can be asserted
  • Become familiar with recent developments in how courts and boards have treated loss-of-productivity claims
  • Evaluate what types of documentation should be assembled and developed in anticipation of a claim
  • Learn what contractual provisions can be used to present (or rebut) and support loss-of-productivity claims
  • And much, much more!

Wednesday, March 11, 2020
1:00 - 2:30 PM EDT

Presented by:
Don Harrington, Brent McSwain and Rex Snyder, Sage Consulting

In any change order or claim, there are numerous elements of direct costs of doing the extra work, the indirect and overhead costs of the work, and possibly delay and impact costs related to the changes or delays that were incurred. The consultant team of Don Harrington, Brent McSwain & Rex Snyder of Sage Consulting Group discuss in great detail the various types of costs that may be allowable for any given claim or change order, and what’s involved in the proper preparation, pricing and support of a request for equitable adjustment (REA). This program will review a large range of pricing issues, including:

  • Forward pricing and post pricing
  • Delay and disruption costs – “measured mile;” “total cost” and other methods
  • Acceleration costs – overtime, inefficiency
  • Field overhead, home office overhead and Eichleay
  • Experts and attorney fees
  • And much, much more!
