related to the avoidance of disputes and claims is the broad field of
risk management. There are numerous potential risk areas throughout the
Design and Construction process and we manage these risks by:
them in advance.
ways to minimize their impact.
in advance how to deal with them, as they arise.
the risk to the party(s) who have the most control.
the most common areas of risk in the design and construction process include
arising from the project delivery system chosen.
arising from the A/E construction documents.
arising from choices made in the General Conditions.
arising from the Bidding process.
arising from unforeseen condition on-site.
related to delays during construction.
related to how disputes are handled.
related to communications on-site between A/E Team, the Owner, and the
related to the scope of A/E services and related services.
related to making changes after the start of construction.
the A/E and related documents are developed towards completion, a specific
focus should be placed on identifying the actual potential risks related
to the project in these areas outlined above, and a clear understanding
established on how to deal with these risks.
