Large Practice Issue: Managing Complex Contracts

Part 1: Tuesday 8 May
12.00pm- 2.00pm

Part 2: Wednesday 23 May
12.00pm- 2.00pm

NOTE: You are booking for BOTH sessions.

Event Details

This event will cover the common contracts used by large architectural practices and how the role of the architect varies considerably between these contracts. Novation will definitely be discussed as it is being used at an increasing rate with many new large scale works. There is a need for everyone to understand why Novation is used and what can be done to make this process more positive for architects whilst meeting the project outcomes.

Over the two sessions, our experienced practioners will discuss key issues with the scope of services, protecting design and will analyse different contractual conditions. They will delve into how to negotiate terms and fees as well as working through key contractual aspects identifying what to add into contracts and clauses to be aware of. The last part of the session will look at the writing of reports and certifications related to inspections and observations of building works.
