Description:Please join us on October 27th as Sue Yoakum delivers this timely presentation.With the effects of the economy on the design and build communities many projects were stopped. Some were stopped at the early stages of Schematic Design while others were stopped during the construction process. Slowly, some of the stopped projects are restarting. The ramifications of stopping and restarting, typically, is not business as usual. This seminar will explore, discuss, and provide guidance on the risks and liabilities with stopping and restarting projects. The pertinent discussion topics will include: potential contractual issues,  what to avoid and what to ask for;  practical guidance on getting paid; copyright concerns; and other issues that a Design Professional should be aware of before restarting a stopped project. This is a timely presentation as many stopped projects are now restarting.
