Be Afraid of Supplementaries to CCDC Contracts! – w/Multi-Disciplinary Trainers

$749.00

Product Overview

Remember when it comes to contracts, it’s not about your own thoughts and assumptions; it’s about what is written!

Where do we run into problems most often with contract compliance and how do we mitigate these problems?

Whether you are the Project Owner, the Consultants, or the Contractors, first you need to understand what you have agreed to in the CCDC and related contracts, and why the clause exists in the first place.  NOT opening, reading and understanding the contract requirements until it's too late is exactly what gets us into trouble time and time again on construction projects. Waiting until there is conflict and only then referring to the contract to see how, or if, we can get out of the problem is like playing Russian roulette.

BE AWARE:  In the nuances of the prime contract clauses, there are implications and requirements impacting all partners including the Consultants and Subcontractors.

 

What will you learn?

In this session, from a team of industry partners’ perspectives, you will:

  • Learn which CCDC and related clauses and concepts in the different project delivery methods consistently create challenges and conflict
  • Discover what these clauses mean and why they exist
  • Explore how to mitigate the pain points associated with these clauses by developing your “go forward” strategies and practices
  • Apply your skills to a specific scenario by presenting possible outcomes and strategies to achieve alignment by all parties.

You can keep on doing what you are doing and expect things to get better, but we all know that is the definition of insanity!  Stop the insanity and find better ways of addressing the contractual obligations you have agreed to!   

Using a hands-on, practical approach, this course will give you an opportunity to apply what you learn by guiding you through interactive exercises. You’ll explore specific scenarios with possible outcomes and learn how to achieve alignment with all parties.
