Contract Fundamentals for the Construction Industry

Drafting a contract is never a straightforward process. This is especially true in the construction industry where staff, contractors and sub-contractors are often all involved in the drafting and execution of a contract. It is important for parties to have a clear understanding of their responsibilities, rights and duties and the operation of contract law generally.

This course provides you with an overall understanding of contract law, from the initial negotiation process all the way through to execution and post completion warranties. The course is specifically tailored to
the construction industry with relevant examples, cases and a dedicated module on common construction contract issues.

Some modules explain the basics of a contract while others cater for those who need to have a deeper
understanding of transferring and varying contracts.

Who is this training for?

This course is suitable for anyone who comes across contracts as part of their day-to-day work. As with all Salt Compliance courses, the training is designed to cater for a diverse audience and all levels of staff, from contractors to engineers, supervisors, senior management, etc.
