Design & Construction Contracts

Design & Construction Contracts

Overview

Cox, Castle & Nicholson has vast expertise and experience in all aspects of preparing and negotiating design and construction contracts with owners, contractors, architects, engineers, and other consultants. Our construction attorneys are knowledgeable about all forms of project delivery models (including the traditional method, where the owner engages the designers and the contractor, to design assist and design-build formats).

Our expertise and experience allows us to identify and properly allocate design and construction phase risks and to clearly spell out the services to be performed by project participants and specify their respective responsibilities. This approach helps to prevent gaps in risk allocation in the contract documents that could lead to claims and change orders in residential (whether a for-sale product or rental) and commercial projects and applies whether we represent the owner, the contractor, or the design professional.
