Under Construction - March 2015


Letter from the Editor

by James J. Sienicki

Welcome to the spring edition of our Under Construction newsletter. There have been some interesting legal changes that have taken place recently with the potential to significantly impact the construction industry.

Our feature article on transaction privilege tax (TPT) reform in Arizona is one such issue. TPT reform has now become law. We will discuss this complex saga and the impact it will have on your business.

Getting paid is obviously the life-line of the construction industry. One way to put pressure on your upstream owners and/or contractors is to suspend work. While this is one of the many tools in the toolbox, is this option effective?

Delay and disruption claims are big ticket items that can make or break a company. You cannot afford not to be knowledgeable about them.

Changes are happening and all of these articles can be valuable to anyone in the construction industry interested in keeping up with the industry. We hope we are able to inform and enlighten you. Have a happy spring and a prosperous year ahead!
