The Construction Industry Has Been Seriously Affected By The Global Crisis And Claims Are A Common Occurrence On Projects. A Professional Who Is Able To Prepare, Analyse And Defend Claims Is Highly Valued And A Tremendous Asset To Any Firm Or Company That Does Business In The Construction Sector.

Furthermore, In The Current Environment, It Is Essential For All Professionals Operating In The Construction Industry To Have A Basic Knowledge Of Construction Claims. This
Workshop Will Provide You With The Expertise To Deal With Claims In A Professional Manner.

The Master Workshop On Construction Claims Is A Specialised/Unique Event;

This Is Due To The Fact That Our Speaker, N.M.Raj (The Creator Of This Course), Has
Several International Commitments And Is Not Regularly Available To Present The Workshop.

Your Company Or Client Is, In All Likelihood, Regularly Losing A Significant Amount Of Money Without Even Knowing About It (Until Its Too Late). For Example, Lets Assume That A Construction Company Loses 10 000 EUR On A Construction Activity Due To A Claim Event;

Assuming That The Project Has A Profit Margin Of 5 %, The Company Would Have To
Generate An Additional Turnover Of 210 000 EUR Just To Offset This Loss. A Few Events, Like The One Described Above, Could Wipe Out The Projects Profit. Without Adequate Recovery Through Claims, Sustained Losses Like This Could Result In Companies Going Bankrupt. This Is Happening Around The World & The Situation Is Exacerbated Due To The Ongoing Crisis. Our Master Workshop Will Train You On How To Use Internationally Recognised Principles To Monitor, Track And Create Claims In Order To Successfully Recover The Above Losses.
