As contractors grow, expand out of state, or take on new types of projects, they're typically tasked with hiring “new” unfamiliar subcontractors or consultants. As either an owner, GC, Construction Manager or Trade Contractor, you may need to hire subs or distant contractors to help you meet your contractual promises.
The uncertainty you face with adding unfamiliar or remote members to the project team, can create legal, project management and other headaches. Out of state construction practices vocabulary or norms may differ from your local expectations too.
Join Michael Best attorneys Roy Wagner and Jonathan Luljak for a discussion on:
- Creating a checklist to help upgrade your new subcontractor hiring and relationships;
- How to better understand the “intel” that investigation and due diligence can reveal before hiring new subs;
- Upgrading your construction administration practices for new subs and relationships; and
- If there is an out of state dispute, best practices.
These insights will expand your subcontractor “hiring” toolkit to ensure that you assemble a team that will help you complete your projects on budget and on time. These strategies can reduce the worry when contemplating new subcontractor relationships and then following them through.
