Workshop to explain construction documentation

You don’t need a room full of lawyers or a full security detail to protect yourself when it comes to providing required documentation on a construction project.

Learn the different types of documentation that go with construction projects at a free workshop hosted by ITD on Oct. 27 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the department's East Annex at 3292 Jordan Street in Boise.

The workshop is sponsored by the department’s Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) Program Supportive Services.

Attorney Wendy T. Wendrowski will discuss the types of documentation that should be prepared during a construction project, and the uses of that documentation.

Participants will learn how to protect themselves by focusing on the importance of documentation. This includes covering the types of job records that should be prepared and maintained during a project to avoid potential problems including project scope “creep” – uncontrolled changes or added objectives in a project’s scope.

Topics will include how to prepare letters on a construction project and “why” and “when” those letters are necessary. 

The daylong program will cover contract obligations and types of project documentation required. Participants can draft and critique various types of project documentation.

Wendrowski has practiced law since 1991, specializing in complex business and commercial litigation, with an emphasis in construction law.

She has prosecuted and defended construction defect claims and claims of violation of federal and state False Claims acts.

She has been involved with construction disputes regarding back-charges, change orders, defective work, defective plans and specifications, and delay.

Wendrowski is a faculty member of Boise State University’s Construction Management Department teaching “Construction Contracts and the Law.”
