NRMCA's Concrete Construction Liability Seminar

 

More: Enhance your learning with these products and videos.

Litigation is costly. Even if you prevail, legal fees, trial costs, staff time and potentially damaging publicity can hurt your bottom line. Fortunately, many of the important factors that affect your chances of being sued are under your control.

Attend NRMCA’s new Concrete Construction Liability Seminar, and you’ll learn how to make your contract your first defense against unwarranted quality claims. You will gain insight on how judges and juries decide whether companies have met the required “standard of care” in concrete quality and performance disputes. In addition, the workshop will include a primer on quality control procedures that can help keep legal claims against your company to a minimum. (course schedule)

Featured presenters include Jeffrey W. Coleman, P.E., Esq. and Richard D. Stehly, P.E.

Jeff Coleman is a licensed engineer, an attorney, and an ACI Fellow. Jeff’s engineering experience includes working as a design structural engineer for Ellerbe Associates, Inc. and serving as the architect’s field representative during reconstruction of the collapsed Hartford Coliseum. Jeff is a partner in the Minneapolis law firm of Coleman, Hull, and vanVliet, PLLP. Attendees will receive a copy of Mr. Coleman’s recently authored the book, Legal Issues in Concrete Construction.

Richard Stehly is a licensed civil engineer, author of multiple articles in engineering journals and has delivered over 180 lectures on construction topics to over 20,000 people in 30 countries. Dick is a past president of the Minnesota Geotechnical Society, a member of the board of directors of the American Concrete Institute and a member of the Disaster Investigation Team of the Masonry Society.
