The Great Disruption Debate: How High is the Bar?

Navigant is delighted to host an evening seminar featuring prominent guest speakers alongside our own Navigant industry experts to debate the thorny issues of disruption claims.

Disruption – and associated productivity losses – remains a notoriously difficult claim to quantify. Whilst disruption will often comprise a significant element of a contractor's claims on major international construction and engineering projects, it remains an area that arguably lacks guidance, whether legal and/or technical, in circumstances where the evidence is often challenging.

Join us for an evening of informative debate and discussion where we will also touch upon key points of the law, ideas for resolution, and whether technology can help in the formulation of such disruption claims. The seminar will be followed by networking and refreshments.
