On May 18, 2022, R. Thomas Avery, shareholder, was a panelist on “Facts and Friction: Straight Talk About When Projects Go Sideways” hosted by the Construction Specifications Institute Greater St. Louis Chapter. The program focused on design and construction claims and featured discussions about construction, risk, the law, and what really happens when things go wrong with building projects.

Facts and Friction: Straight Talk about when Projects Go Sideways

Presentation Description:

We have all heard many times about how projects are SUPPOSED to work and how disputes are SUPPOSED to be resolved. But what really happens is often kept quiet. If you’ve never been through a design or construction claim, let our panel of experts guide you through what happens when things don’t go as planned.

Fortune favors the prepared, therefore it should be a standard practice that we teach students and professionals not only the ways we might avoid disputes but also handling disputes even to the worst ends. Not only will this give us insight into the reasons for our standard practices, but such knowledge can also prepare us to better cope with the tribulations and literal trials that are sometimes necessary to reach resolution.
