Understand the use and enforceability of such disclaimer clauses and the contract risk management techniques used to mitigate downside risk.

Differing site and concealed conditions are routinely encountered on public and private construction projects. Whether the construction project focuses on new construction or a renovation of an existing structure the risk of differing or concealed conditions is always significant. The owner desires certainty in bidding, desires to transfer the risk to the contractor yet seeks the lowest bid for the work. The contractor desires to submit a competitive price yet understand and cover the cost of the work it will ultimately perform.

This material presents the owner and the contractor’s perspectives on the risk of differing or concealed site conditions and the role disclaimers of liability for site data plays in managing the risk. Learn the use and enforceability of such disclaimer clauses and the contract risk management techniques owners and contractors use to mitigate downside risk.
