Better Contracts, Better Projects: The ConsensusDocs Solution

Avoiding unfair risk distribution in contracts, improving project collaboration and building better business relationships are all keys to success. ConsensusDocs are the only standard contracts developed by a diverse coalition of 40 leading associations, including NECA, with members from all stakeholders in the design and the construction industry. This presentation will explain the importance of fair and balanced contract language and how it protects the best interests of the project rather than a singular party in order to yield better project results and fewer disputes.
