Our new collaboration technology allows you to grant review or editing access to other parties and finalize agreements, while maintaining an easy and efficient version-control system.

Construction Practices Have Evolved, So Should Your Contracts

ConsensusDocs contracts are continuously updated to keep pace with the latest changes in construction practices and legal updates. From agreements specifically addressing issues such as building information modeling (BIM), green construction or design-build, our standardized contracts, developed by a coalition of leading industry experts, mean you are assured your projects have the best contractual foundation possible.

Building a Better Way…Through Consensus

ConsensusDocs contracts are written and endorsed by 40 leading associations with members from all stakeholders in the design and construction industry. By fairly allocating risk and incorporating best practices, ConsensusDocs helps you reduce costly claims and contingencies, and lessen adversarial negotiations, saving you time and money. Our 100+ contracts are written in plain English and address all project delivery methods. ConsensusDocs’ easy-to-use online application enables contract collaboration and customization to reach consensus.

Better Contracts Make for Better Projects

Only ConsensusDocs draws upon industry experts representing owners, general and specialty contractors, design professionals, attorneys, sureties and stakeholders to craft the strongest and most balanced agreements in the industry. Since the major risks and responsibilities have already been efficiently and fairly allocated, ConsensusDocs users save considerable time and money previously spent at the negotiating table, and projects benefit from reduced risk contingencies that increase bid prices.

Simply put…ConsensusDocs are a better way to build and help you achieve better projects results!
