Who Pays for the Unexpected in Construction?—The Lawyer's Point of Viewby William J. Postner, Postner & Rubin, New York, United States,
Document Type: Proceeding Paper
Part of: Preparing for Construction in the 21st Century
Abstract: Encountering the unexpected is to be expected - it is one of the risks inherent in construction. While encountering the unexpected cannot be completely prevented, steps to (1) reduce the likelihood of encountering the unexpected, (2) allocate the risk of the unexpected and (3) deal with the unexpected when encountered can and should be considered. Since the topic was discussed on April 25, 1963, at a seminar of the Metropolitan Section of the American Society of Civil Engineers entitled 'Who Pays for the Unexpected in Construction?', some steps have been taken but, unfortunately, not all for the better.
