Best Practices for Contracting Between Design Professionals?
And How ConsensusDocs Contracts Can Help

Monday, November 10, 2014 at 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM

Contracting between design professionals often raises risk management issues concerning the application and use of fundamental business terms, risk allocation between similarly aligned parties, and operational concerns related to compliance with pass-through owner requirements.  A new standard contract published by ConsensusDocs, a coalition of 40+ industry groups, attempts to fairly allocate the risks confronting contracting design professionals between them, in a way that recognizes and utilizes best practices that are commonly employed by prime designers and consultants alike. This webinar, given by two of the lead authors of the working group that drafted the new contract document, will highlight critical issues that any agreement negotiated between design professionals and consultants should address, and project-specific considerations that designers and consultants may want to consider addressing in the context of such contract negotiations.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify and discuss best practices for contacting between a responsible design professional and a subcontracting consultant design professional.
  • Understand how the new ConsensusDocs 250 Standard Design Professional to Consultant Agreement addresses the unique risk management issues confronting contracting design professionals.
  • Identify and understand keys contractual clauses design professionals and consultants should discuss and consider using to address their unique project and business needs.
