Michael C. Kelley, a partner in Shutts & Bowen LLP’s Orlando office, will present a 90-minute CLE webinar on Wednesday, September 29, 2021, discussing best practices for preparing for catastrophic events in the construction industry, as well as related considerations for specific contract provisions.
Hosted by Strafford, the CLE webinar, titled “Construction Risk Mitigation Prior to and During Catastrophic Events,” will advise construction counsel on best practices for preparing for catastrophic events, from wildfires to extreme heat to hurricanes and tornadoes. Michael and his fellow panelists will discuss how the more active, severe weather and climate activity of the last few years has led to construction projects with potential delays and adjustments in mind. The panel will provide counsel with factors to consider in pre-bid planning and tender stages, how to utilize alternative construction methodologies, and how to modify working times and supply chains to meet needs. In the presentation, Michael will also address the importance of emergency action planning and the negotiation of contracts and purchase orders with the expectation of natural or other catastrophic events.
