Construction Contract Negotiation Techniques - Form of Contract


Depending on who you represent each contract will be different.

Who do you represent? The owner, the general contractor, the construction manager, the subcontractor or the designer? Clearly, the rights and remedies in a contract could be different depending on who you represent. When taking on a client there are many questions to ask and things to consider. Do you know what stage the project is in, if construction has commenced, the timing of negotiations?  This video reviews general and prime contracts, subcontracts and professional services.
