Conflicts in Construction Specifications

Posted on Updated on

The role of specifications from the legal standpoint

Mr. Richard Wong, Chair of Osler, Hoskin & Harcourt LLP’s national construction and infrastructure practice group and Evan Barz, Student-at-Law, speak to the membership of Construction Specifications Canada at a luncheon presentation hosted by the Grand Valley Chapter on February 15th, 2017

Key talking points include:

  • How much weight do specifications hold in terms of project documentation?
    Do typos really matter?
  • Are drawing notes an acceptable form of specifying requirements (i.e. replacing specifications)
  • What happens if project requirements (i.e. specifications) are not properly reviewed prior to project commencement?
  • Who is ultimately to blame for mistakes made in the contract documents?
