Construction Contract Negotiation Techniques

Understand the key issues of time and money that will have a direct impact on the success of your construction job.

The success or failure of a construction project is directly linked to the terms and conditions of the construction contracts that define the job. The owner, contractor/construction manager, and subcontractors each have distinct interests in the form and substance of the contract. This topic helps the persons responsible for the negotiation of construction contracts to address the key issues of time and money that will have a direct impact on the success of the job. We will provide you with insights into the key contract clauses and suggest modifications that may be appropriate for your next job. The preparation of a comprehensive construction contract is the best protection against time consuming and costly construction claims and dispute resolution. This information is critical for employers so they can ensure that important rights are not left behind on the negotiating table.
