Description

For the first time, we are bringing virtual instructor-led expertise to your office through the synergy of multi-disciplinary trainers' knowledge that has only been delivered at conferences.  And it gets better!  In the past, conference presentations have been focused on a one-way exchange of know-how from the speakers to you.  This workshop moves beyond that one-way exchange to allow you to apply what you have learned. 

A team of multi-disciplinary experts will provide you with exceptional feedback, great insight and actionable strategies.  We look forward to sharing this expertise with you.

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

What has caused these changes to industry standard contract clauses?  Allocation of risk often gets modified in contract clauses based on Project Owner's or their lawyer's past experiences. The issue with modifications to contract clauses is the lack of understanding of what the clause means and its associated risks to Project Owners, Consultants, Contractors and other Stakeholders. 

If the risk materializes:

  • disputes arise,
  • relationships are damaged,
  • project costs can increase,
  • schedules can be compromised,
  • bidders can jeopardize their businesses and
  • the potential for litigation increases.

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

LEARNING OUTCOMES:

With decades of experience, the project partners (Owner, Consultant, and Contractor) will, from their perspectives, assist you to:

  • Understand WHAT the risks are in CCDC, CCA and provincial standard contracts that have been modified by supplementary conditions
  • Discover WHY these clauses are modified
  • Develop strategies on HOW to address the impact of these clauses
  • Apply what you have learned to determine COSTS associated with these clauses
