Webinar: Force Majeure & Differing Site Conditions


Scott Jennings, P.E. facilitates a live 2-hour webinar and Q&A with attorney Scott Batterman, Esq. of Clay Chapman Iwamura Pulice & Nervell, Attorneys at Law from Honolulu, Hawaii to address one of the hottest topics now in the construction industry:  

Force Majeure due to COVID-19

And also because many attendees are expected to be underground contractors and owners, we will also discuss one of the age old issues affecting this work:

Differing Site Conditions
Notification Requirements

Receive the answers to some of these burning questions:

As a contractor…

  • What are my rights under my specific City & County of Honolulu, State of Hawaii, or Board of Water Supply contract?  
  • What should I do to reserve my rights?  
  • What compensation, in time and cost, am I entitled to?

As an owner…

  • Should I suspend my contractor?
  • Is this a no damages for delay scenario?
  • If we are put on notice by our contractor, what should our response be?

This is a no-cost short session put on by two Honolulu firms which specialize in the Hawaii construction industry.
