Contract Security – Risk Management on Construction Projects

Contract Security – Risk Management on Construction Projects

BC Housing: 1.5 CPD Points


No construction project is free from risks including damage to property, cost escalations, poor performance, defects, etc. There are several mechanisms that construction professionals can use to manage risk on projects.  

In this webinar, the team of lawyers heading Clark Wilson LLP’s Infrastructure, Construction & Procurement group will review and discuss how the following mechanisms act as contract security for owners and contractors operating in this risk-prone industry: 

  • Builders Risk / Course of Construction Policy Coverage – Samantha Ip and Kim Do 

  • Wrap-Up Liability Insurance – Satinder Sidhu 

  • Construction Bonds – Scott Lamb 

  • Warranties – Rosalie Clark 

Attendees will learn about property insurance coverage that is available during construction and wrap-up liability coverage in the context of construction claims. Further, participants will learn how construction bonds serve as useful safeguards for contracting parties on a construction project, providing security for payment and completion. The presentation also covers the nuances of contractual warranty provisions and the warranty regime mandated in BC. 

At the end of the presentation, there will be a Q&A period where participants are encouraged to ask any questions they may have. If you would like to submit your questions before the start of the session, please send them to

  1. Internet connection - For best results, you will want to ensure you have an internet connection with an upload/download speed of 3-5 Mbps. You can test your internet speed here.
