6 Construction Tech Trends to Watch in 2017
Should Subcontractors Bear Scheduling Risks They Can't Control?
|The B1M; Published February 2017
Technology is fast-changing the world we live in and construction is by no means immune to that.
Recent advancements have seen many tech innovations that started out as novelties or gimmicks quickly find their way to practical applications in the built environment sector. Here we look at six key areas to keep your eyes on in 2017.

The project schedule and a project’s financial success or failure are inextricably linked. A delayed project can expose prime contractors and their subcontractors to damages suffered by the owner, liquidated and actual, in addition to cost increases from field and home office overhead. Even if the schedule is “recovered,” the effort to right the ship may require so much overtime, crew augmentation, and inefficiency that a potentially profitable job turns into a puddle of red ink. Given these financial risks, some prime contractors draft their subcontracts to push the risk of scheduling problems and resulting delays downstream. Sometimes these scheduling clauses require subcontractors to bear the cost of risks the subcontractor cannot control. Is this a good idea?
