Reseña del editor:

Construction is a complex business. Each project has its own unique physical and commercial considerations. Since there’s no such thing as a “standard” or “typical” construction project, construction contracts should also not be considered standard. The contractor must carefully manage both in order to have a successful outcome and protect the company’s interests and assets. This book will show you how to identify, understand, and evaluate high-risk terms and conditions typically found in construction contracts – then negotiate to lower or eliminate the risk, improve terms of payment, and reduce exposure to claims and disputes.You don't have to be a lawyer to understand the risks and to be able to negotiate better and less risky commercial terms and conditions. The author has written this book without using “legalese,” instead providing real-life examples you can relate to from actual projects – from small residential and retail to large commercial, industrial, and international work.
