How to Leverage New 2017 ConsensusDocs Standard Contracts to Stay Ahead of the Curve 


Webinar Date:
      August 10, 2017 at 2:00 pm ET

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. 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 webinar will address how the recent ConsensusDocs updates reflect 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 to the ConsensusDocs standard contracts
• 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 that American Institute of Architect’s (AIA) contract documents
