Construction Contracts

McKenzie-Douglass works with all members of the project team to identify the potential misunderstandings of the project’s requirements and to forestall issues that are common to the construction industry.

Why You Should Work With Us

Unrealistic or baseless expectations that so frequently result in construction disputes can be easily avoided. Disputes often result from at least one party’s failure to take unforeseen conditions into consideration, yet unforeseen conditions occur with nearly every construction project. A well-prepared construction contract, coupled with a thorough understanding of all parties’ expectations, can address many of those unfortunate situations before they become problems.

In spite of the best efforts of the design professionals and the legal team, construction disputes still occur, often due to mutually-exclusive expectations of the parties that the construction documents fail to adequately address. When the design and legal professionals do not share sufficient expertise in each other’s discipline to fully coordinate both the designer’s and the contractual requirements in the construction documents, details that can avert these kinds of disputes are often overlooked.

McKenzie-Douglass works directly with owners, contractors, design professionals and their respective legal teams to identify the potential misunderstandings of the project’s requirements, the pitfalls of the unforeseen conditions that occur with nearly every construction project, and to forestall issues that are common to the construction industry. We assist owners, contractors, legal and design professionals with the preparation of more comprehensive contract documents to address those commonly experienced details that too often become the source of a dispute.
