Event description

Construction Risk Management is intended to manage and control risks associated with the planning, monitoring and execution of construction projects, whether these be of a physical or financial nature. To achieve this, it is essential to identify potential hazards and risks, assess the extent of the risk, provide measures to control the risk and manage any residual risks.

Conversely, Value Engineering is associated with improving the cost effectiveness of projects by balancing the function that is desired against the associated cost. It is a useful management tool that aims to identify the best functional balance between cost, reliability and performance of a project or part of a project.

Case studies in construction risk management

To illustrate the potential impact of poor risk management, we will look at the fall-out of the Genoa bridge collapse and the potential lessons that can be learned from inadequate risk management. With regards to value engineering, this session will also cover the very hot topic of the review of UK’s HS2 high speed rail project that is underway. This is also a critical issue a little closer to home, with the reviews that are being conducted on the possible high-speed rail link between Singapore and Kuala Lumpur.

Common pitfalls in managing construction risks

The next session will focus on the common pitfalls in managing construction risks. We will discuss the common contractual clauses concerning extensions of time, acceleration, liquidated damages and termination. In additional, we will also take a look at how a tribunal might interpret the actions of parties to a construction contract, in the context of these common clauses.

By looking through the lenses of a potential arbitration or litigation, practical insights can be extrapolated for everyday use. In exploring of the above issues, the session will cover some legal updates and do a case study on the recent UK decision of Triple Point Technology, Inc v PTT Public Company Ltd [2019] EWCA Civ 230.
