Lofty heights? Delay and Disruption in Vertical Projects
On September 8th, Aston Consult’s Suzanne Chinner will be presenting with Pinsent Masons’ Gemma Thomas, at the Society of Construction Law Australia’s Webinar Event. Suzanne and Gemma will be speaking on Delay and Disruption in Vertical Building Projects.
Since the dawn of time, mankind has been obsessed with building into the sky – from the tower of Babel to more recent mega rises spanning almost half a mile. Today, most city skylines are adorned with highrises, which serve as commercial, residential, hotels and mixed-use buildings. Reaching these lofty heights, however, brings its own risks that need to be navigated if the project is to be successful.
The session will provide insights into the risks associated with vertical projects, specifically the delay and disruption events often associated with these projects.
The presentation will cover:
- Common causes of delay and disruption in vertical construction projects
- Some cases where those risks have played out
- Insights from a legal and quantum perspective
- What makes a successful claim
The presentation commences at 12.30 pm AEST on Wednesday 8th September 2021.
