Managing CCDC Contracts to Minimize Conflict

One of the most common mistakes we make in the construction industry is not opening, reading and understanding the contract requirements until it's too late. Waiting until there is conflict and only then referring to the contract to see how, or if, we can get out of the problem is a dangerous game.

Whether you're the project owner, consultant, or contractor, you need to understand what you have agreed to in the contract and why the clause exists in the first place. It's critical to be aware of what you're agreeing to: in the nuances of the prime contract clauses, there are implications and requirements impacting all partners including the consultants and subcontractors.

Gain insights into key clauses and concepts in different project delivery methods that consistently create challenges and conflict. You'll learn from each instructor's experience as an ICI practitioner and gain the perspectives of a project owner, consultant and contractor on:

  • What these clauses mean and why they exist
  • How to mitigate the pain points associated with these clauses
  • How to develop your 'go forward' strategies and practices

Using a hands-on, practical approach, this course will give you an opportunity to apply what you learn by guiding you through interactive exercises. You'll explore specific scenarios with possible outcomes and learn how to achieve alignment with all parties.

This course features clauses from: CCDC 2, 5A, 5B, 14 ,15.
