Construction contracts define relationships and terms between the parties involved for any construction project. Knowing how the construction contracting process works is vital for any construction professional.

The course is designed to give participants an overview of different types of construction contracts, will cover important provisions and payment clauses that can be found in a contract and will conclude with a discussion on construction delays and warranties.

The seminar will take place at our Coral Gables office from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m. For more information or to register to attend, contact the firm's Stephanie Bonilla at (305) 442-8536, or via email at [email protected].
