  • Understand WHAT the risks are in CCDC, CCA and provincial standard contracts that have been modified by supplementary conditions
  • Discover WHY these clauses are modified
  • Develop strategies on HOW to address the impact of these clauses
  • Apply what you have learned to determine COSTS associated with these clauses

“Best most informative seminar in a long time.”

“Fantastic way to see contracts from a variety of industry opinions/standpoints

For the first time, we are bringing virtual instructor-led expertise to your office through a team of multi-discipline trainers’, with decades of knowledge, only previously available at conferences. Past conference presentations were focused on a one-way exchange of know-how from the speakers to you. 

This course moves beyond that one-way exchange, allowing you to apply what you have learned. This course is highly interactive!

A team of multi-discipline experts will provide you with exceptional feedback, great insight and actionable strategies.  We look forward to sharing this expertise with you.

Remember when it comes to contracts, it’s not about your own thoughts and assumptions; it’s about what is “written”!

What has caused these changes to industry-standard contract clauses?  Allocation of risk often gets modified in contract clauses based on Project owners or their lawyer’s past experiences. The issue with modifications to contract clauses is the lack of understanding of what the clause means and its associated risks to Project Owners, Consultants, Contractors and other Stakeholders.

If the risk materializes:

  • disputes arise,
  • relationships are damaged,
  • project costs can increase,
  • schedules can be compromised,
  • bidders can jeopardize their businesses and
  • the potential for litigation increases.

BE AWARE:  In the nuances of the prime contract clauses, there are implications to all partners including the Consultants and Subcontractors.


It is recommended that students have some experience in a construction/contract management role and/or have familiarity with contract language, format, and usage. Those with less experience are welcome to attend but may find it hard to absorb and appreciate the material without prior experience or context.
