Sapphire Bay Land Development, the new developer for the $1 billion waterfront mixed-use project in Rowlett, Texas, of the same name, broke ground on the Crystal Lagoons feature Nov. 25, marking a major milestone for an undertaking that has seen two previous teams unsuccessfully try to make headway with the development near Dallas. In addition to the "crystal lagoon," manmade lake feature, the 117-acre beach-themed Sapphire Bay development will first see the construction of a resort, conference center, marina and beach club. This first phase should be complete in late 2023. 
  
In its second annual report on the cause of construction disputes, international consultancy HKA found that changes to a project's scope of work was the most frequent contributor to disagreements across the sectors it studied: buildings; defense, aerospace and military; industrial; infrastructure; oil and gas; and power and utilities. HKA found that as contractors take on more design functions or subcontract that job out to others, disputes related to design have almost overtaken those related to contracts, which featured prominently in the company's 2018 analysis.
