CDRI Seminar Series: Change Orders and Extras

November 17, 2021 - 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
Construction projects have a number of challenges — from selecting the contractor and negotiating the construction contract to navigating change orders and project delays. Anticipating these challenges and effectively dealing with disputes as they arise can save valuable time and resources.

In this five-part webinar series, we invite you to join the Blakes Construction Litigation group in Calgary as we explore some of the most frequent issues that occur during a construction project. We will also provide practical guidance and tips on how to identify and mitigate litigation risks.

Webcast #3: Change Orders and Extras

This presentation will focus on issues that relate to change orders and how to deal with them. We will look at both the contractor’s and the owner’s perspective. We will also discuss when a change order is necessary, the effect of a signed changed order, what constitutes an extra and how damages will be assessed for failure to comply with the change terms of a contract.
