Benton J. Barton

Benton Barton will update his annual in-house risk management presentation for architects and engineers on Thursday, April 6. This year’s program, “Sailing the High C’s: Contracts, Communication, Coordination,” will be presented in-person and virtually.

“Smooth seas never made a skilled sailor.” For design firms in Colorado, most projects make it to port just fine, while others spring leaks. Why? Nobody goes into a project expecting a claim, but when disputes arise there are usually ways to calm the storm, either by riding the waves or building bridges over troubled waters. Lessons learned by designers consistently refer back to the “High C’s.” Contracts, Communication and Coordination. Though they are fundamental principles, today the High C’s matter more than ever.

Andrew Treloar, Claim Counsel with Travelers, will be co-presenting. Mr. Treloar and Mr. Barton will offer advice on how to navigate through the choppy waters of projects and claims, doing great work while keeping an eye out for risk.

The free presentation is also hosted by Cindy King of Professional Underwriters Incorporated of Colorado, and has been approved by AIA for 3 CE credits. Please RSVP if you’d like to join us.
