AIA Contracts

AIA’s General Conditions of the Contract for Construction have been revised! Learn all about the changes at this upcoming workshop. 

It is absolutely vital for a contractor to choose an unbiased contract that apportions risks and responsibilities in a fair and balanced manner. The A201™–2007, General Conditions of the Contract for Construction is the keystone document in a majority of projects that set forth a contractor’s roles and responsibilities on a construction project. The A201 is incorporated by reference into other contract documents with owners, architects and subcontractors and puts a contractor on solid legal footing with the owner of a project by balancing risks and responsibilities equitably. This seminar will instruct those who negotiate and manage the use of AIA contracts, including design-build, construction management, and subcontract agreements.

Construction Liens & Payment Bonds: A Remedy for Payment on Public Works Projects

Great opportunity in the combo class! This is a fast-paced nuts and bolts workshop on how to establish a construction lien for contractors, subcontractors, and suppliers on commercial, industrial, office, and residential projects.  Learn how to prevent liens if you are an owner or a general contractor. Learn the critical time periods and how to fill out the notice of furnishing, claim of lien, sworn statement, lien waiver, and other necessary forms. In these challenging times, when getting paid is so important, this workshop is a must for owners, contractors, subcontractors, and suppliers. 

Then, move into payment bonds. In public work projects, there are no construction liens. Payment bonds are furnished by the contractor to the owner to protect payment to the subcontractor and supplier. In this nuts and bolts workshop, you will learn the necessary steps to establish a claim against the payment bond, as well as the critical time periods, how a bond claim is enforced, and how a claim can still be valid if a time period is missed. Because so much of the current work in Southeast Michigan is public and governmental, this workshop is critical.

Behavior Based Safety - Fundamentals & Implementation - MTI Elective

Behavioral safety is the application of behavior analysis to work, specifically, safe and unsafe performance of a task. Using scientific principles of motivation, systems are analyzed to identify what is motivating safe or unsafe performance. For example, people take safety shortcuts because they are motivated by the certain and immediate consequence of saving a little time and they are not motivated by the fairly uncertain and unlikely consequence of getting hurt. Systems can then be modified or implemented to improve performance in a positive method. Implementation will be discussed with an emphasis on providing examples from companies who have used behavioral safety successfully.
