THE PRACTICAL AND SIMPLE APPROACH TO PREPARING CONSTRUCTION CLAIMS AND SECURING PAYMENT

Claims on construction projects due to changes and delays create a constant problem for Contractors and Subcontractors. A severe drain on cashflow and a profits crash often results. Very often the problem is of the Contractor's or Subcontractor's making in failing to grasp the basic principles relating to claims and applying them properly. This course adopts a practical approach to the matter which can easily be understood and used on a day to day basis.

At Longworth Consulting, we have been successfully presenting courses on claims in construction for over 5 years. In addition, we have practised what we preach, in that during this period we have recovered millions of pounds on behalf of Contractors and Subcontractors through using simple techniques. These techniques will be explained to delegates attending this course.
