CLRM July Call – ConsensusDocs – An alternative to AIA Construction Contracts
Wed, Jul 10, 2019, 10:30 AM – 11:30 AM PDT
Brian Perlberg is the Executive Director of ConsensusDocs and Senior Counsel for Associated General Contractors of America. Brian presented at our annual conference and will join this call so that those of you who were unable to be with us will have a head start on reviewing these contracts for future projects.
ConsensusDocs were developed as an alternative to AIA construction contacts to help developers and contractors reach agreements that improve the chances of success. Standard contracts don’t always fairly allocate risks between the developer, designer and contractor, which can result in higher bids, as well as delays and cost overruns that can result in failed projects. ConsensusDocs were developed by a coalition of developers, designers, contractors and suppliers.

Emerging Red Flags in CRE Property Condition Assessments:
Whether you’re involved in new development, rehab, or the evaluation and management of existing buildings, this month’s call should provide food for thought.
Property values and operating costs can vary significantly depending on building materials and design/construction methods as well as the overall condition of improvements. You may already be familiar with commonly recognized red flags like polybutylene piping and fire-retardant plywood, but newer materials and designs sometimes come with problems of their own.
This month, Joe Derhake, CEO of Partner Engineering, will join us to talk about emerging issues that bear thinking about when acquiring or financing properties.
