Contract Provisions Subcontractors Need to Know About


Better understand the rights, remedies, responsibilities, and risks of the various subcontracts.

Performing work on a construction project without reading and understanding your contract is like sitting down to a game of high-stakes poker without having ever played the game or learned its rules. You'll slowly learn the rules with each loss.

Subcontractors need to understand the subcontracts they sign if they hope to survive and prosper in the modern construction industry. Courts will not save the parties from bad deals. In addition, construction contracts have gotten more complex as projects have gotten more complex. Identifying the important terms of a contract has gotten more difficult.

This program will focus on the contract provisions that subcontractors truly need to know about, and why they need to know about these provisions. This knowledge will lead to a better understanding of the rights, remedies, responsibilities, and risks of the various subcontracts that the participants may encounter in their professional experience. Armed with this understanding, participants will be better positioned to draft, negotiate, and administer their construction contracts.

This topic will benefit owners, construction managers, contractors, trade and specialty contractors, subcontractors, suppliers, architects, engineers, sureties, attorneys, and others in the construction industry who dealings are affected by subcontract issues.
