Free Webinar – The Architect’s Guide to Managing Risk on Residential Construction Projects

June 28, 2016 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Insurers report a disproportionate number of claims against architects concerning multi-family housing, especially condominiums. This leads to higher premiums and deductibles, and it caps the amount of condo work firms can accept. AIA Contract Documents experts will discuss unique issues in residential design-build, mixed-use and residential condominium construction and the relationship between developer-builders and architects. 

Register today (free.) Earn 1 AIA LU.

Learning Objectives:

1. Survey the unique risks that architects face when participating in residential design-build, mixed-use and residential condominium construction in order to minimize or avoid them.

2. Examine how a clear understanding of each party’s unique roles and responsibilities will reduce project delays, misunderstandings and disputes.

3. Identify key contractual modifications that can help alleviate the risks and challenges of residential design and construction in order to achieve a successful project.

4. Learn where to get AIA resources, tools, contracts and guides developed to enhance your understanding of residential contract and risk management issues to the benefit of all project team members.
