On January 21, 2016, Please join us for Ed Seglias and Jason Copley‘s seminar, “Ignorance is not Bliss: Construction Contract Provisions You Need to Know,” for the General Building Contractors Association (GBCA) in Philadelphia, PA.
This seminar will focus on key provisions in the standardized contract forms that often affect the risks and outcomes on a typical commercial construction project. For example, Ed and Jason will discuss provisions that allocate risk for differing site conditions, hazardous materials, delays beyond the contractor’s control and defection or omissions in design drawings. They will also examine contract provisions addressing payment, indemnity, scope changes, and termination. Finally, they will review notice provisions, dispute resolution provisions and some bonding and warranty provisions to provide some general guidance about these terms.
