5th EPC Contract & Risk Management

Maximizing Stakeholder Cohesion and Collaboration Throughout Project Lifecycles to Mitigate Risk and Optimize Organizational Outcomes

12-14 Sep 2017
Houston, TX, United States of America

Conference Workshop

Being Creative to Ensure Effective Collaboration Methods with All Stakeholders

There is no standard operating procedure for communication during the EPC process, which can lead to contractors, owners, and law firms having different levels of access to communication tools and cultural nuances, particularly for internationally diverse stakeholders. But, this doesn’t mean they can’t collaborate effectively. Understanding differences in techniques and applying out-of-the-box communication skills can bridge the gap between questions and answers.

Conference Workshop

Anticipating Insurance Costs Based on Risk Profile and Assent Protection

Optaining insurance is one of the most obvious steps when planning a project. Typically, potential factors such as property damage or force majeure are considered, but it is important to understand and implement any potential options that could fit the project. Insurance should be as unique and thought out as each project.
