ConsensusDocs Webinar: Successful Construction Contracts
Successful Construction Contracts: Essential Clauses and the Advantage of Using ConsensusDocs
Thursday, December 6th | 1pm-2pm ET
Description: Studies demonstrate that fair, best practice contracts achieve superior construction project results, while one-sided, outdated contracts filled with siloed clauses lead to claims and litigation. What clauses should you prioritize in negotiations to set a foundation for success, and which should you avoid? The two-main standard construction contract documents, AIA and ConsensusDocs, take different approaches in some areas and similar approaches in others.
Join Bob Majerus, Vice President and General Counsel of Hensel Phelps, and Brian Perlberg, Executive Director of ConsensusDocs to learn how to:
- Leverage the advantages in standard construction and architectural agreements to improve your bottom-line.
- Utilize proper risk allocation to boost party relationships, profits, and avoid claims and delays.
- Spot some contract killer clauses and contractual best practices to prioritize.
- The differences and advantage between ConsensusDocs and the AIA A201.
