Tell a Friend About This EventTell a Friend
 

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 between property owner or developer and the builder and their expectations are radically unsettled.

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 between property owner or developer and the builder and their expectations are radically unsettled. The construction contract is a comprehensive and careful delineation and allocation of risks, a compromise between flexibility and price/cost certainty, and establishes procedures for resolving disputes short of costly litigation. This program will provide you with a practical guide to drafting the most important provisions of construction contracts and cost-effective resolution of disputes.

Day 2 – March 25, 2016:

  • Identifying, mitigating and allocating risk among property owners, developers and investors
  • Spotting red flags and identifying risks in construction contracts
  • Insurance and indemnification provisions of construction contracts
  • Role of subcontractors and mechanics’ and materialmen liens
  • Anticipating disputes between property owners and builders, and building in cost-effective dispute resolution
  • Role and limitations of different type of damages
