  • Presenters
Please join BDO Advisory for a complimentary breakfast seminar featuring Continuing Legal Education. 
In the world of construction time and money are closely related. Owner’s often rely on Contractor’s expertise in developing a reasonable and achievable plan for the construction of their projects and calculate their financial models accordingly. When planned schedules are inaccurate, delays and corresponding financial impacts including consequential damages may occur. In addition, in instances of insurable events such as fire or other calamites, insurance related compensation for consequential damages may be determined based on a “reasonable” period of restoration. 
This program explores issues in evaluating and developing reasonable schedules for construction as well as the determination of lost profits and consequential damages.
