In most conflict situations when performance issues arise on your own home or business project, it can be traced back to how the administration started...and that's where we'll start.
Who designed, planned, and coordinated the project? Having represented projects from ten thousand up to multi-million dollar hospitals and universities, on the smaller home/business project the answer I most commonly hear is, "well, I did," the Owner. Taking nothing away from an Owner's ambition and the accepted desire to reduce overhead costs, Construction Document comprehension, Contract Development and control of your Contractor is an art all in itself. Protecting your investment starts with being properly represented.
The American Institute of Architects construction documents are the best way to manage the most important legal-based documents. Other related documents for general daily management can be personalized as they are with WJRA and then made inclusive to the original AIA contract. I just can't stress enough how important this is! AIA has exactly the right administration for a job worth $1000 or a Million, They're customized for what is needed, nothing more. WJRA keeps this process simple and provides the best protection for you and your project.
Don't ever sign any Contractor documents, remember, they're the Contractors?
