Trade Contracts – A Double Edge Sword

May 21 @ 10:00 am - May 22 @ 1:30 pm

Free – $576.46

Benjamin Franklin opined “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure”.

Today subcontracts are becoming more and more confusing and onerous with the General Contractors pushing more and more risk, responsibility, and liability onto the Trade Contractor, so it behooves the Trade Contractor to have a greater understanding of the contract before a problem threatens their business rather than after.

The Canadian Construction Association Trade Contractors Council published “CCA 53 – A Trade Contractor’s Guide and Checklist to Construction Contracts”. This document was created to “draw the attention of Trade Contractors to certain clauses that frequently appear in construction contracts or subcontracts which can adversely affect the rights and obligations of trade
contractors” and forms part of the discussion.

Trade Contracts – A Double-Edged Sword will help you understand:

Significant clauses identified in the CCA 53 document, including:

  • Design responsibility
  • Performance specifications
  • Conduit or flow-down provisions
  • Scope of subcontract work
  • Payment
  • Insurance
  • Protection of work
  • Warranties
  • Temporary site facilities
  • Course Format

Who Should Attend: Subcontractors, general contractors, contract administrators, estimators in the construction industry.
