Three things contractors should know about disaster relief

After just over a month removed from the wildfires that consumed nearly 200,000 acre of land in the North Bay (in Northern California) the process of rebuilding is slowly taking place. It is believed that given the extensive damage to land and property, the process will take years to complete.

Determining damages in construction contract disputes

With construction contracts, it is important to establish expectations at the outset with regard to completion deadlines, construction costs, and measures to prevent overruns. Indeed, incorporating as much detail into the contract could help in resolving small issues before they become major problems.

The benefits of certification

One way that fledgling construction companies can gain success is to become certified. Certification as a Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE), Women-Owned Business Enterprise (WBE), or a Minority-Owned Business Enterprise (MBE) can result in obtaining government construction contracts. This is because federal law mandates that a certain percentage of contract work be allocated to certified companies. Additionally, a growing number of private companies have established programs where work is contracted to certified companies.

Why hotels have such aggressive renovation timelines

There are two things that drive people crazy when on vacation: bad traffic and construction noise. After all, most tourists go on vacation to get away from the trappings of their professional lives, and enduring traffic jams and construction sites are not tourist friendly by any stretch of the imagination.

Will the Rams and Chargers' stadium delays lead to cost overruns?

Because of the recent draft, the National Basketball Association has the spotlight in the sporting lives of Southern Californians for now. But it will only be a matter of time before the NFL retakes its media foothold later this summer.  When it comes, most talk will center around the Los Angeles Rams and their new neighbor, the Los Angeles Chargers, who moved from San Diego this winter to play (eventually) in the teams’ $2.6 billion stadium in Inglewood.

Avoiding common contractor scams

Whether you are hiring a contractor to work on your home or your business property, taking the time to conduct some due diligence can help you avoid costly scams. Even when no scam is afoot, a little research helps you ensure you are hiring an experienced contractor who is less likely to leave you with defective construction or repairs.
