On February 18, 2016, construction law attorney Jean M. Terry presented a seminar entitled “Killer Contracts: Homicide or Suicide?” at the Indiana Construction Industry Conference in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. The seminar included a discussion of key contract provisions that are at play on construction projects and how to work within the bounds of said provisions to protect yourself and insure payment. The seminar paid particular attention to issues at play on Indiana Department of Transportation projects and the impact IDOT’s Specifications have on contractors’ scope of work, change order procedure, and differing site conditions.
The Indiana Construction Industry Conference is designed for mid- to senior-level management professionals who work in the Indiana construction industry. The seminar was well received and generated lively group discussion regarding the problems and solutions encountered on Indiana construction projects.
