You will also learn about practical negotiation strategies and techniques applicable for public and private work as well as contrasting strategies for existing contracted work vs. work not yet under contract.
- Understand how a price escalation clause can provide equitable relief for owner and contractors.
- Understand how certain price escalation clause can be written to be more or less acceptable to owners.
- Learn other contract negotiation strategies to mitigate against price escalation including cost of the work; force majeure; change of law; allowances; and the early procurement of materials should be considered.
