Mitigating Risk: Understanding the Construction Claims Process
Live Webinar Via Zoom
Program hosted by the MCA Affiliate Alliance.
Claims have long been identified as one the most significant issues that face contractors, owners and architect/engineers alike. Invariably, claims create an adverse environment that often prevents long-term relationships, the foundation of a strong company. This presentation investigates the common causes of claims and then builds on that knowledge to generate common sense strategies to avoid claims and manage risk.
Professor Tim Wentz
served on the University of Nebraska Construction Management College of Engineering faculty for 25 years until being named an Emeritus Professor in 2018 and was also awarded the inaugural Lifetime Achievement Award that same year. Tim started his journey on the mechanical contracting side by working for his family's mechanical contracting company doing estimating, project management and design/build. After entering academia in 1994, he was named national "MCAA Educator of the Year" for his work with the UNL Student Chapter in 2000, 2002, and 2004. In 2009 he was also awarded MCAA's highest honor, the Distinguished Service Award. Between Tim and his son (Blake), we're sure you've at least heard the name "Wentz" if you've been around MCAA for the past decade!
