Join Nick Zaita of Peckar & Abramson, P.C. and Rudy Frizzi of Langan Engineering & Environmental Services, Inc. for a discussion of Owner, Designer and Contractor risks associated with differing site conditions on design-build and design-bid-build projects.

From varying points of view, the presenters will examine a range of issues that arise when encountering differing site conditions, including:

  • The Owner’s thought process in deciding what physical due diligence should be done prior to issuance of design documents for bid on a design-bid-build project.
  • The Contractor’s and Designer’s processes considered when determining the extent of subsurface investigation that should be performed as part of a design-build project.
  • How to determine if the conditions encountered are truly different.
  • The two primary types of differing site conditions and how the project delivery method influences risk exposure.
  • How to evaluate each party’s risk exposure for the impacts caused by the differing site condition, and how that evaluation changes depending on the project delivery method.
  • Various types of the claims that can arise as a result of differing site conditions
