Stay Ahead of the Contractual Curve

Design and construction contracts set the foundation for a construction project’s success. Case law, technology and insurance have changed dramatically over the past 10 years. Learn recent industry changes impacting payment, insurance, terminations, indemnification, mediation and arbitration and avoiding fiduciary duty. ConsensusDocs, a coalition of 40 leading construction organizations that include AGC, ABC and COAA, recently published comprehensive updates to its general terms and conditions, prime contracts with integrated terms and general conditions and subcontracts. This is an opportunity to understand the industry changes impacting payment, insurance, terminations, indemnification, mediation and arbitration and avoiding fiduciary duty. Industry experts will highlight the most significant changes and strategize how you can leverage contract negotiations on specific provisions or in using the new 2017 editions of ConsensusDocs standard documents.

Attend this information-packed program to:
• Review recent changes impacting payment, insurance, terminations, indemnification, mediation and arbitration and avoiding fiduciary duty.
• Gain a better understanding of why changes were needed to existing contracts to reflect today’s construction industry
• Gain an overview how ConsensusDocs contracts are different than American Institute of Architect’s (AIA) contract documents
