Fiduciary Obligations in Labour and Material Payment Bonds
Labour and material payment bonds are a critical part of any project risk management plan. These bonds have specific purposes which include providing a fund for unpaid claimants and helping avoid liens being registered against project lands. However, these bonds also give rise to certain legal obligations. This session will discuss the recent Supreme Court of Canada decision in Valard Construction, and how this decision has changed the obligations imposed on parties who require labour and material payment bonds.

Playing a Changing Game: A Shift in Ownership of Non-Traditional Risks
In correlation with the growth in use of design-build and P3, contractors are in uncharted territories. In the current competitive environment with razor thin margins, the war for talent and the increasing entry of global players in the Canadian market, risk tolerances have had to increase for previously unassumed exposures. This session will review risks transferred to contractors in alternative contractual structures including environmental, geological, archaeological conditions, weather and force majeure risks along with the availability of risk transfer mechanisms.

The Billion Dollar Question – to DB or not to DB?
The Royal Columbian Hospital in New Westminster, B.C., is undergoing a three-phase $1.35-billion redevelopment, the largest government-funded health care capital project in the province’s history. Phase 1 is presently under construction as a design-build project. An extensive procurement options analysis was conducted on Phases 2 and 3 in collaboration with Partnerships BC, Ernst and Young, and Fraser Health. This session will provide an overview of the project and the results of the procurement options analysis that considered DB, DBF or DBFM with public sector hospital-wide facilities maintenance.
