Free Webinar series by Kingsfield Academy and Freeths

The COVID-19 pandemic is severely impacting global engineering construction. The cost of disruption resulting from the pandemic will cause all parties to suffer, with the potential risk of complex, time-consuming and expensive dispute resolution.

Does it have to be that way?

With an industry-wide movement towards improving collaboration and the RICS Conflict Avoidance Pledge in the UK, there is hope that the industry can find innovative and pragmatic solutions in response to the pandemic.

Traditional delay and disruption claims resulting from COVID-19 are going to be difficult because all stakeholders are impacted. This is a unique opportunity to find alternative solutions instead.

Join Kingsfield Academy and Freeths for a series of three webinars based on a Case Scenario where we discuss the issues created by COVID-19 for global engineering construction, the practical and legal considerations and what alternative solutions may be. We consider the issues from the perspective of each key stakeholder on a project – the Owner/Employer, EPC Contractor, Subcontractors and Vendors/Suppliers.
