July 6, 2022

Course Description:

Payment in the construction industry is a problem. This create problems for both the owner and the contractor as well as the other participants involved with the project (consultant, subcontractors, sub-subcontractors and suppliers). The Canadian Construction Documents Committee (CCDC) and the Canadian Construction Association (CCA) publish standard contracts and guides for the construction industry.

In this four-hour virtual instructor-led workshop, the payment process in standard contracts (CCDC-2 Stipulated Price Contract, CCA-1 Stipulated Price Subcontract, CCA-19 Stipulated Price Sub-Subcontract) will be reviewed along with contract language from non-standard contracts which can delay payment. It is important to recognize when your client is trying to work language into the contract which delays payment (pay-if-paid, pay-when-paid, “notwithstanding” clauses).

Course Topics:

  • CCA 28 – A Guide to Improving Cash Flow in the Construction Industry
  • CCA 50 – A Prime Contractors Guide to Project Financing and Payment Security
  • CCA 53 – Trade Contractors Guide and Checklist to Construction Contracts
  • CCA Banking Guide for the Canadian Construction Association
  • CCDC 12 – Project Financial Information Disclosure Form
