Defect-free Buildings by Robert S Mann

Book Description

Eliminate construction mistakes and minimize your exposure to expense and litigation with defect-free buildings. Nothing packs a more costly punch and ruins a project faster than a construction defect dispute. And nothing stops a project dead in its tracks faster than conflicts between builders and owners. But with McGraw-Hill's "Defect-Free Buildings", you can rid your projects of these debilitating conflicts and protect your business against the costs, delays, and litigation they create.Packed with easy-to-understand guidelines, protocols, and checklists, this indispensable volume helps you: determine proper construction methods and costs during planning and bidding; avoid defects in the building stages and enhance quality control; obtain the proper insurance and satisfy underwriting requirements; reduce or eliminate the threat and cost of litigation.To help you minimize cost and lost time when disputes become unavoidable, "Defect-Free Buildings" also delivers a wide range of powerful conflict-resolution techniques. You'll learn how to: get the right contract in place; develop forms and documents that minimize or eliminate disputes and delays in payment; document construction conditions to avoid potential conflicts and owner claims; resolve conflicts effectively; and more! Written by a construction attorney with more than 25 years' experience as an arbitrator and mediator, "Defect-Free Buildings" is the money-saving resource you'll want within reach on every construction job.
