The Canadian Construction Contracts Guidebook
Availability: In Stock

The construction contract process explained, in simple, easy-to-follow terms

Discover this new resource that clearly outlines the commercial considerations in establishing the legal framework between the various parties to a construction project.

The Canadian Construction Contracts Guidebook addresses the issues from the perspective of how best to establish the contractual arrangement, as opposed to addressing contract administration issues or trying to resolve a dispute after it has arisen on a construction project.

The book also provides helpful context and a guide to understanding many of the issues faced in negotiating a construction contract. It provides practical suggestions and alternatives to addressing contract issues as well as sample clauses in respect of the issues that frequently arise in the negotiation of a construction contract.

The Canadian Construction Contracts Guidebook is a must-have for any person who is involved in a construction project in Canada, whether they be owners, contractors, consultant, subcontractors, material supplier, lawyer, or insurance and surety advisor.
