Midwest states with large-population, metropolitan areas mostly plan to extend stay-at-home orders, while smaller population states never had a stay-at-home order to begin with or are planning to let them expire as reported cases of COVID-19 decrease.
The only group in the U.S. and Canada that collects and disseminates lessons from failures, errors, mishaps and safety issues is calling for reports on structural and jobsite hazards arising from the COVID-19 pandemic.
Change will happen throughout the course of every project. It's our ability to manage scope change that helps projects come in on schedule and within budget. We'll look at the benefits of effective change control, key contributors to change, and review proper processes and procedures for proactive change control with the goal of generating awareness of best practices and providing actionable insights.

Worldwide capacity for underwriting construction risk remains a challenge. We'll discuss best practices that are driving favorable market responses along with alternative risk financing techniques that contractors are using to better finance losses and control rate impacts.
Many construction projects go over budget and off schedule because their office and field teams are looking at different data. But when contractors run their business applications in a connected cloud, they can easily share data. Three contractors will share how connected cloud technology is helping them make better business decisions that are leading to more profitable operations and growth.
Even with a poor track record for on-time, on-budget completion, cost estimating and project planning for CAPEX projects over the last half century has remained virtually unchanged.

Both public outreach during a project and crisis management when something goes badly wrong requires communication with the public. What are the strategies for each? What are the similarities? What are the differences? In this webinar, industry insiders will discuss keys to forming a communication structure during the public outreach phase of a project.
Email is the default method of day-to-day communication, meaning the bulk of project information is buried in emails, 'locked' inside individual inboxes. This makes email critical in not only preventing disputes but reducing businesses’ overall risk exposure. We'll discuss the pitfalls construction companies in the US fall into when it comes to disputes, and how email management can help avoid these legal disputes.
