ConsensusDocs Executive Director & Senior Counsel

Contracts set the foundation for project success. Unbalanced contracts jeopardize project success and increase prices by up to 20 percent. Technology, legal developments and the insurance market have all changed dramatically during the past 10 years. Learn how comprehensive updates recently made by ConsensusDocs offer significant advantages to you and your projects over other standard contracts widely used in the industry that protect architects at the expense of builders and owners.

In this webinar, understand how you can leverage the ConsensusDocs provisions as a viable alternative or as a contract negotiation tool involving other standard contract documents or “original” contracts. You will learn how timely payment provisions, access to project financial information, better direct communications, change orders and interim directives provide a better contractual foundation. Gain insight on how certain contract killer clauses related to termination for cause, termination for convenience, owner or architect direct means and methods, complex claim notice provisions, and unclear scope of the work provisions can hurt a project and put your company’s bottom line at risk.
