AIA Document A401

Construction subcontract agreements are often given less strategic consideration than prime contract documents. Whereas the prime contract may be analyzed and negotiated for an extended period, the subcontract may be pulled from an older project and put in place with a simple name change and scope of work change. Failure to consider the subcontract strategically may prove disastrous. Subcontractor disputes are common, and without strategic planning during the contract formation stage, the parties may suffer later. This OnDemand Webinar analyzes a standard subcontract document which is readily used on construction projects, and identifies areas where the standard form may be improved. This program provides practical tips and provides suggestions for revisions to the standard AIA document. After the program you should be able to use the standard documents strategically to mitigate risks and costly disputes.
