Construction Contracts: Drafting Issues, Spotting Red Flags and Allocating Risk, Part 1 Out of Stock
About the Seminar - Computer Based Audio ONLY programs (No Video)
Construction contracts are among the most difficult agreements to draft or review, and negotiate. At every stage, building is fraught with substantial risk - timely regulatory approvals, cost containment and price certainty, financing contingencies, building deadlines, and a host of other risks. If these risks materialize, as is common, the bargained for exchange among the parties and their expectations are radically unsettled. The construction contract is a comprehensive and careful allocation of risks, a compromise between flexibility and price/cost certainty, and establishes procedures for resolving disputes short of costly litigation. This program will provide you with a practical guide to drafting the most important provisions of construction contracts and cost-effective resolution of disputes.
-Reviewing and drafting essential provisions of construction contracts
-Use and common mistakes in using AIA contacts in negotiations with builders
-Defining the scope of a project and planning for modifications
-How fees and costs are structured - and allocating risk of changes
-Tying performance standards and timelines to payments - progress payments and retainage
-Issues involving contractor licensure and subsequent claims
