The Subcontract – A Double Edge-Sword How To Protect Yourself From Unfavorable Clauses
Thursday, November 29, 2018 – 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.
NLCA Office – Classroom, 397 Stavanger Drive, Suite 202
Guest Speaker: Lee Kelly, Constructing Minds Inc.
Today subcontracts are becoming more and more confusing and onerous with the General Contractors pushing more and more risk, responsibility and liability onto the Trade Contractor, so it behooves the Trade Contractor to have a greater understanding of the contract before a problem threatens your business rather than after.
This half‐day session will discuss the Trade Contractor’s contractual responsibilities and will examine the guide and checklist of significant clauses identified in the CCA 53 document. Clauses regarding design responsibility, performance specifications, conduit or flow‐down provisions, scope of subcontract work, payment, insurance, protection of work, warranties, temporary site facilities etc. will be reviewed. In addition, and using a green, amber and red‐light system using actual subcontracts, participants will review and analyze actual subcontract clauses to identify those clauses to be on the look‐out for when reviewing and attempting to understand the construction contracts you are asked to bid upon and sign.
