Business disasters of all types can cause unprecedented damage, destruction, and delays to construction projects. Contractors must review their contracts and insurance policies — and consider risk management, insurance, and claims strategies — well ahead of a disaster. This session will educate the audience on critical pre-loss planning strategies and how to present loss costs following a catastrophic business disaster effectively. The expert panel representing a large national contractor, claims management, and litigation will present best practices for contractors when preparing for and mitigating the financial and delay impacts of a disaster on a construction project. This will include a discussion of loss mitigation strategies; ways to navigate the complex property, builder’s risk, delay in start-up, business interruption insurance, and FEMA claims; and recommendations for optimizing the presentation of the loss costs for reimbursement.
