Understanding & Negotiating Construction Contracts

Construction is a complex business. Each project has its own unique physical and commercial considerations. Since there’s no such thing as a “standard” or “typical” construction project, construction contracts should also not be considered standard. The contractor must carefully manage both in order to have a successful outcome and protect the company’s interests and assets.

This book will help you manage all these elements of the contract including:
  • Scope of work and schedule
  • Terms of payment and cash flow
  • Assurances of performance
  • Insurance, bonding, indemnity, and warranties
  • Changes to the contract
  • Disputes and their resolution
  • Damages
  • Termination and suspension
  • Force majeure
  • International contracting
