Think twice before walking away from stalled projects
Abstract: Stalled and abandoned projects are an unfortunate reality in the construction business today. Financing may dry up, or owners faced with dwindling prospective tenants may conclude that they’re better off walking away. But that doesn’t mean contractors should do the same. Depending on their potential liability exposure, it may make sense for contractors to do some extra work to secure or stabilize the job site, or to protect their work against the elements — even if they won’t be compensated for it. This article describes the steps to take.
