This class will explore the most common clauses by which project owners and general contractors shift risk down to subcontractors, focusing on risks they create, recommended changes to make them more reasonable, and strategies to try to negotiate these changes. Specific topics include:
Better understanding the complex terms and conditions included in most construction contracts
Risk shifting clauses (e.g., no-damages-for-delay, pay-if-paid, differing site conditions)
Process and procedure clauses (e.g., notice, submittals, payments, changes, disputes)
Company Principals, Contract Managers, Purchasing, Estimators, Executive Team, Project Managers, and Contract Handling Employees
