Provided exclusively to XL Design Professional customers, the online Contract eGuide is the centerpiece of our loss prevention and risk management program, and is considered the industry gold standard by many architects, engineers and their attorneys.
Whether you have developed your own standard contract, prefer the use of professional society agreements, or are asked to use a client-written form, you’ll find the eGuide invaluable. It includes a wealth of easy-to-understand information on contract basics and provides step-by-step suggestions for reviewing and improving client-drafted agreements.
MORE THAN A BOOK ABOUT CONTRACTS
The eGuide takes you beyond the contract, to examine day-to-day business strategies, too: project selection, client communication, billing and payment policies, contract negotiations and identifying and allocating risk.
The eGuide’s also a valuable resource for managing risks of specific practices, such as design-build or public projects. And several chapters are dedicated to emerging trends like green design and sustainability, building information modeling (BIM), public private partnerships and innovative design technology.
Want to know the most effective limitation of liability language or how to avoid claims related to the use of electronic documents? You can easily search the eGuide for the answers you need, and copy/paste sample contract language directly into your documents.
Best of all, you don’t have to be a lawyer to understand it. Each chapter defines a topic, explains the issues involved and offers realistic advice for preventing claims – all in plain English.
