Upcoming Events

  • Who's in Control and What's at Stake?

    Livonia | Dates: 17 – 17 May, 2017

    Recent trends in building adaptive reuse and rehabilitation in urban centers such as Detroit and Grand Rapids have resulted in more intimate relationships among property owners, developers, contractors, vendors, and members of the public.  These relationships can result in overlapping and/or assumed liabilities for damages incurred to property and persons on or adjacent to a construction work site.  As such, these projects present contractors with challenges and pitfalls that might not otherwise be recognized or appreciated on a more traditional, “stand-alone” job site.
