As part of its ongoing CONSTRUCTION LEADERSHIP SERIES, LDCA is pleased to present April 21, 2017 from 8:30 to 11:30 am, at LDCA:
A Trade Contractor’s Guide and Checklist to Construction Contracts
There is an old saying that those who refuse to read and understand the terms of their construction contracts are doomed to failure…
The Canadian Construction Association Trade Contractors Council (CCATCC) published a new CCA 53 in 2016 to assist trade contractors in reviewing contracts, no matter what their position in relation to the project. CCA 53 highlights the important clauses that frequently appear in construction contracts or subcontracts which can adversely affect the rights and obligations of trade contractors.
This half-day session will discuss trade contractors’ contractual responsibilities and will analyze the checklist of important clauses identified in CCA 53, e.g. design responsibility, flow-down, scope of subcontract work, payment, insurance, protection-of-work, implied vs. expressed warranties, temporary site facilities, delay, changes etc.
Discussions will focus on what to be on the look-out for when reviewing and attempting to understand the construction contracts you are asked to bid and sign. Language of CCA 1 ‘Stipulated Price Subcontract’ will be used throughout this session as examples of fair and equitable provisions. Onerous provisions deviating substantially from the standard CCA 1 wording should serve as warning signals to trade contractors!
