Innovative approaches to analyzing cause and effect in construction inefficiency claims
There are many established ways to quantify inefficiency, but associated claims often lack clear demonstration of cause and effect. On September 29, The Society of Construction Law North America (SCL NA), BRG, and The Chiumento Law Group for this webinar examined innovative approaches to analyze cause and effect to assist in the prosecution, defense, and ultimate resolution of inefficiency claims.
Drawing on experience from the field of labor and employment law, experts discussed the application of techniques recognized by courts and designed to collect detailed data regarding what work was done, its context, and the time spent. We also considered legal issues on analytics and expertise and looked at how developing technology and artificial intelligence can assist in the analysis of productivity and efficiency on construction projects. Anamaria Popescu is the chairman of SCL NA.
