  • The Hidden Dangerous Risks of Contracting Prefabrication and Modular Building and Why ConsensusDocs’ Newest Document is Changing Everything!

    Contains 3 Component(s) Includes a Live Web Event on 10/27/2020 at 2:00 PM (EDT)

    Ronald D. Ciotti, Partner, Hinckley Allen will demonstrate how your current contracts and purchase orders fail to address key new risks that arise with prefab, and why the industry’s first standard form is critically needed. This session will highlight the most important issues presented by prefabricated construction, best practices for solving these issues, and how to tailor the industry’s first standard prefabricated contract to fit your specific business and project needs. This session is a MUST for contractors, subcontractors, bond producers, and sureties!

    Prefabrication and modular construction have changed the industry in more ways than just increasing its efficiency, safety, quality, and speed.  They have also changed the contractor/subcontractor relationship, which dramatically increases the potential legal risks associated with such a hybrid relationship, which in turn, requires a complete re-write of your standard construction contract!  Prefabrication and modular construction often include both off-site manufacturing of building components (normally contracted through a purchase order) as well as the installation of those components into an ongoing project (normally contracted through a subcontract agreement).  

    Standard subcontracts or purchase orders do not address unique legal aspects raised by prefabrication.  However, ConsensusDocs has just completed work on the first-in-the-nation General Contractor/Prefabricator Agreement, which specifically and properly addresses prefab operations and implementation. You will learn how your current contracts and purchase orders fail to address key new risks that arise with prefab, and why the industry’s first standard form is critically needed. 

    This session will highlight the most important issues presented by prefabricated construction, best practices for solving these issues, and how to tailor the industry’s first standard prefabricated contract to fit your specific business and project needs.  This session is a MUST for contractors, subcontractors, bond producers, and sureties!

  • Critical Project Restart Strategies: Best Practices to Help Construction Firms Restart Projects

    Contains 3 Component(s) Recorded On: 10/07/2020

    With the goal of preventing COVID-19 transmission, adhere to quarantine rules, and deal with “stay at home” guidelines, many construction projects nationwide have been shuttered. Now businesses must recognize the importance of project restart strategies that are imperative to ensure successful completion.

    With the goal of preventing COVID-19 transmission, adhere to quarantine rules, and deal with “stay at home” guidelines, many construction projects nationwide have been shuttered.  Now businesses must recognize the importance of project restart strategies that are imperative to ensure successful completion. In the same vein that the work came to a screeching halt, the restart of construction projects will have the same frenetic pace as the New York City Marathon when the “starting gun goes off.” Ideally, construction leaders would like to see a seamless transition to simply “continuing where they left off.” Realistically, even if the restart occurs just seven days after a work stoppage, activity would not resume normal function due to everything from supply chain disruptions to new hygiene-related work rules. Construction projects will resemble the trajectory of an ocean-going super tanker trying to turn rather than a high-performance sports car cornering on a dime.

    In this webinar, construction leaders will learn the following:

    1. FMI’s “Restart Strategy” for projects
    2. The impact to the supply chain and conduct collaborative conversations to drive action and results
    3. Cash flow, billings, and costs to determine the fiscal results of COVID-19 on projects and work in progress
    4. Important considerations related to workforces, delays, protocols, and the ever-important “Project Exit Strategy”
