Construction Contracts: Drafting Issues, Spotting Red Flags and Allocating Risk - Part 2


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 among the parties and their expectations are radically unsettled.

Construction contracts are a careful allocation of risks, a compromise between flexibility and price/cost certainty, and establish procedures for resolving disputes short of costly litigation.

This program provides a practical guide to drafting the most important provisions of construction contracts.

Part 2 topics include:

  • 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
