Please join us for our next webinar of the series presented by Ken Rubinstein of Preti Flaherty.
Managing COVID-19 Risk in the AIA A201 Contract Document
The standard, unedited AIA A201-2017 is not built to handle a risk like COVID-19. While most contractors are used to reviewing and revising AIA contracts to address typical risks, there are additional changes that contractors should consider to minimize COVID-19 related risks in new contracts. This business level presentation provides specific recommended edits – and explains the rationale behind these recommended changes. Written materials containing and explaining the suggested edits will be provided.
