Construction Contracting and Change Orders

A CONSTRUCTION MANAGEMENT CERTIFICATE PROGRAM REQUIREMENT

Description

A "good" construction contract will not always guarantee success. However, a "bad" construction contract will almost always result in failure. Similarly, not knowing how to navigate the complexities of the change order process can expose your company to substantial risk and potential litigation. This workshop will review what to look for in construction contracts, and examine the change order process.   

 

Learning Objectives 

  • Learning the fundamentals of good construction contracts.
  • Learning what to look out for in in a construction contract, in order to preserve your rights.
  • Examination of the change order process.
  • Learning how to navigate the complexities of the change order process.
