Bollier Ciccone LLP advises on the full array of construction contracts for individuals, property owners, developers, contractors, and subcontractors involved at any level or stage of the construction development process. We deliver proven skills in working with a wide range of clients to assess and address the risks of any construction initiative through smart, practical, and comprehensive drafting and negotiation of related construction contracts. We work with our clients to identify the potential risks of the project at hand, depending on the role our client may assume in that particular construction initiative.

Our firm is fluent in the nuances of construction contracting in varying commercial and market sectors, as well as for personal endeavors including the construction of a new home, second home, remodel, or build-out. We know the specific contract clauses that are unique to an array of applications and industries. We are well-versed in project delivery systems that can range from design-bid-build to design/build to integrated project delivery. We negotiate and draft the spectrum of agreements required to successfully execute construction/building projects, such as:

  • Architect and engineer agreements
  • Construction and design-build contracts
  • Management contracts, including at-risk and multi-prime agreements
  • General contracts such as cost-plus, lump-sum, and guaranteed maximum price
  • Subcontractor agreements
  • Architect, manager, or contractor termination arrangements

In addition to drafting unique project-specific contracts, we are familiar with the major professional organizations’ form construction contracts of the American Institute of Architects (AIA), the Engineers Joint Documents Committee (EJCDC), ConsensusDOCS, Associated General Contractors of America (AGC), and the Design-Build Institute of America (DBIA).

We regularly advise clients on negotiating various provisions of construction contracts, including change orders, delays, claim preservation, liquidated damages, and indemnity.

No matter the scope or complexity of your contract, our team will help you to identify and minimize risk while leveraging opportunity and maximizing your potential for ROI. While many of our clients focus on the contract price and project turn-around, we deliver an extra level of care by also analyzing and incorporating the important details and assignment of risk-allocation clauses that will likely impact your result.
