Do You Have Control Issues? Dealing with Late Delivery and Price Escalation
This presentation will address material unavailability, delivery delay, and price escalation and how subcontractors can maintain some control over the things they can’t control. The presentation will examine pertinent contract provisions and provide some resources and best practices subcontractors can implement on projects to protect against delay and price increases outside their control.
