Part of: Avoiding Contract Disputes


Construction contract disputes, or dressed in their popular nomenclature, 'contract claims', have become an established aspect of the non-residential construction business and with mixed results. In the Fall of 1980, the San Francisco Bay Section of the American Association of Cost Engineers undertook a project with the goal of making a significant contribution in the area of Construction Disputes or 'Contract Claims'. The material for this paper was abstracted from their work entitled 'Complex Claims Handbook'.
