The ConsensusDocs Coalition recently revised many of its prime and subcontract agreements to address changes and best-practices including design, construction, insurance, legal, technology, and terminology.
The revised documents clarify and expand upon:
- Termination for convenience
- Changes and directives
- Dispute resolution.
- Owner/Design professional relationship
“They include revisions and improvements designed to keep pace with industry changes and best practices,” said Carrie L. Ciliberto, Esq., deputy executive director and counsel for ConsensusDocs.
The ConsensusDocs Coalition is a group of 40 leading design and construction industry associations that publishes contracts that reflect the objectives of all parties to advance the best interests of the project. The coalition is focused on more practical, shorter, and succinct contracts that emphasize clarity and transparency.
