In many ways, contract negotiation continues to be the bane of the average engineer’s existence.  Often the owner prepared contract completely misses the point of what is trying to be accomplished in forming the contract in the first place.

This workshop addresses what should be the role of the contract in the project delivery process, and where attention must be placed in order to make sure that both parties are getting the maximum benefit from bargain. Utilizing problematic recurring themes in contract, you'll also address problematic wording or clauses. 

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify the reality of the goals of preparers of owners’ contracts and how their focus is poorly aimed
  • Taking actual contract clauses frequently included in owner prepared contracts, you'll breakdown why the clauses are problematic for the owner as well as for you
  • Examine alternate wording
