Certification Conundrum Webinar

Certification Conundrum Webinar

Construction projects can be complicated
but understanding payment certification
doesn’t have to be!

The CIQS Ontario chapter is proud to host the webinar “Certification Conundrum: How deficiencies put payment certification at risk” featuring industry experts Brian Shedden and Heather Elliot of Entuitive Corporation.

The “Certification Conundrum” will examine the risks inherent in the issuance of a Payment Certificate when latent deficiencies brought about by poor workmanship, material failures, design inadequacies or even fraud come to light and often result in litigation. The duty of care that the Certifier owes, the ongoing involvement in the project, the understanding of the responsibilities of the various professionals, trades and construction manager and the necessity for a “hands-on” approach and effective communications will be explored through two case studies that resulted in protracted litigation involving virtually all parties to the original contract.

In this webinar, the attendees will learn:

  • How to mitigate risk through effective management of the certification process.
  • The essential role of effective Site Review and deficiency logging.
  • The litigation process, what to expect and the concept of Justice.
