How is the Carnival Cruise Ship Disaster Like Some Construction Projects?

cruise shipNow that I have your attention:  Have you followed the “cruise from hell” story, in which Carnival Cruise passengers were forced to make do on a ship with no working power or lavatory facilities for the better part of a week?

Think this has nothing to do with construction projects?

On the contrary, this story serves as a reminder that if something can go wrong, eventually, it WILL go wrong.

No where is this more true than on a construction project.

Read my guest post on today’s Construction Law Musings to find out how you can prepare for the unexpected on your construction projects.  While you are there, browse around and check out the wealth of information on Chris Hill’s Virginia-based construction law blog.
