We review draft agreements for:

  • Contradictory terms
  • Vague or gray terms
  • Unaddressed/insufficiently addressed risks
  • Opportunities to implement best practices

We also increase cost control by:

  • Auditing labor rates prior to approval in the agreements. We have been able to reduce labor rates by 20% to 50%, reducing general conditions costs by as much as $800k before the project even starts.
  • Auditing insurance markups prior to approval in the agreements. Typically we can reduce insurance markups by 40% to 75%.
  • Adding terms in agreements to control use of allowances and contingency, prevent them from unintended use.
  • Validating any cost assumptions used by Developers, General Contractors and their Subcontractors.
