Construction contracts are among the most difficult agreements to draft or review, and negotiate.

At every stage, building is fraught with substantial risk – timely regulatory approvals, cost containment and price certainty, financing contingencies, building deadlines, and a host of other risks. If these risks materialize, as is common, the bargained for exchange among the parties and their expectations are radically unsettled.

The construction contract is a comprehensive and careful allocation of risks, a compromise between flexibility and price/cost certainty, and establishes procedures for resolving disputes short of costly litigation.

This program provides a practical guide to drafting the most important provisions of construction contracts and cost-effective resolution of disputes.

Part 1 topics include:

  • Reviewing and drafting essential provisions of construction contracts
  • Use and common mistakes in using AIA contacts in negotiations with builders
  • Defining the scope of a project and planning for modifications
  • How fees and costs are structured – and allocating risk of changes
  • Tying performance standards and timelines to payments – progress payments and retainage
  • Issues involving contractor licensure and subsequent claims
