How to Leverage ConsensusDocs Standard Contracts to Your Benefit and Keep Ahead of the Curve
Phil Beck & Brian Perlberg
Design and construction contracts set the foundation for a construction project’s success. Case law, technology and insurance have changed dramatically over the past 10 years. ConsensusDocs, a coalition of 40 leading construction organizations that include AGC, ABC and COAA, recently published comprehensive updates to its general terms and conditions, prime contracts with integrated terms and general conditions and subcontracts.
