Delivery Systems: Understand the Potential Risks and
Benefits Associated with Different Delivery Systems
Scott Pence and Lauren Catoe
Carlton Fields, P.A.
Understanding and negotiating construction contracts can be tricky and extremely risky. Potential risk and liability lies around every corner of a construction project and unknowingly assuming that risk can put your company in harm’s way. If the wrong delivery system is used, or if you fail to understand and account for the risks and liabilities you are assuming under your construction contract, your company could become involved in timely and expensive disputes and ultimately be responsible for liability that could put your company out of business. Don’t sign construction contracts blindly and risk the viability of your company.
During this informative, 90-minute recorded webinar, participants will learn to:
- Recognize the more common delivery systems available and prevalent in today’s construction industry.
- Identify major liabilities and benefits to each party under each of those delivery systems.
- Become familiar with new and cutting-edge delivery systems designed to address the current economic climate.
- And much, much more!
