Defects-Managing a problem that can emerge without a warning



This informative webinar delves into the critical issue of defects in construction projects, a global problem that continues to cause significant damage to both property and individuals, both financially and otherwise. The webinar features two highly respected industry experts: David Shuttleworth, a Chartered Quantity Surveyor, and Brendon Choa, an accredited Adjudicator, Advocate, and Solicitor.

During the webinar, David Shuttleworth shares practical examples of defects that have occurred in buildings and provides an in-depth understanding of the differences between patent and latent defects. He brings a wealth of experience to the discussion and offers valuable insights into identifying and addressing these issues. Brendon Choa, on the other hand, tackles the legal issues that arise from Defects Liability clauses in contracts.

This webinar is an essential resource for all those involved in construction, especially those who have encountered difficulties with defects on their projects.
