Construction contracts can be quite complex. They vary depending on the needs of the owner or developer, the type of construction project at issue, and the scope of the work to be performed. A good contract is a necessary first step towards a successful construction project, while a bad contract can derail a project before the first shovel of dirt is moved.
Longleaf Law Partners’ clients engage in construction projects that range from upfitting space for a new tenant to creating multi-family and mixed-use projects with budgets over $100 million. Our goal is to assist our clients in preparing and negotiating the construction contracts for those projects. This includes providing appropriate protection to the owner or developer through the construction process, as well as clarity with respect to the rights and obligations of all parties to the contract.
Our firm has substantial experience negotiating contracts on behalf of owners and developers, facilitating relationships with architects and other design professionals, as well as contractors. We assist in negotiating terms in the AIA and ConsensusDocs library of contracts, as well as drafting custom agreements when that best serves our clients’ needs.
