Upcoming ConsensusDocs Webinars

Lean Contracting Practices without an IPD Contract and the New ConsensusDocs Lean Addendum
Friday, September 28th | 1:00PM - 2:30 PM EDT 

Lean design and construction methods have emerged as one of the most significant developments to improve value, efficiency, and relationships in the design and construction industry. Design and construction contracts provide both a potential obstacle and opportunity to incorporating lean tools and developing a lean culture for your next construction project. Learn how you can use the new ConsensusDocs 305 Lean Addendum to facilitate a lean project without an integrated project delivery (IPD) contract. Getting your contracts right to encourage lean is difficult. Now there is an industry contract standard form to help.

Learning Objectives

  • Gain an overview of the new ConsensusDocs 305 Lean Addendum
  • Learn lean project fundamentals that you can incorporate in your project’s contracts
  • Understand how to implement lean practices and lean culture when an Owner’s constraints preclude use of an IPD contract.
