On design-build projects, the owner enters into a contract with a design-builder who is obligated to design and construct the project. The design-builder then enters into contracts with architects and contractors, as needed. Design-build documents can be used on small to large projects.

This course will explore the unique features of the AIA’s updated design-build agreements and the key differences from the 2004 documents. Attendees will learn about the contractual relationships and liabilities set forth in these agreements and how to properly allocate risks and responsibilities in order to achieve a successful project.

The dirty little not-so-secret of the construction industry is that a large percentage of companies depend on change orders to drive profit - even to the extent of bidding below cost in the expectation that change orders will drive that project from the red to the black. Yet so many of the same companies have such inadequate change order management processes that they are leaving money on the table, at best - or setting themselves up for business failure, at worst. This webinar aggregates techniques for world class change order management from one of the leading experts in the industry.

Today’s legal climate does not allow commercial snow and ice maintenance contractors to simply push snow.  A contractor must have all controls in place to limit slip and fall liability and property damage suits.  This program will address pre-planning of customer service needs, customer property pre-season inspections, site planning considerations, quality of work, re-freeze control and more.
