At Minnesota Construction Law Services, we are a construction law firm that uses the construction laws and regulations to your benefit. See below for common issues about construction law.
A construction contract is to the business-side of your project as the blueprint is to the construction site. A detailed and easy to understand contract lays the groundwork for a successful and smooth project. A strong construction contract will contain the key elements necessary to clearly communicate what each party can expect from the others including defined project scope, established timeline, determined cost, designated payment terms, comprehensive change order procedures, performance expectations, and a method for resolving disputes.
A construction defect is a deficiency in the workmanship, design, or materials that results in a flaw in the structure or aesthetics of a building. Repairing defective work can result in additional effort, time, and money. Our job is to hold the party that caused the defect accountable for the costs to repair it with the least effort and the lowest cost to our client.
Contractors rely on specialty subcontractors to complete projects on time and budget. A strong relationship with your sub begins with a strong subcontractor agreement that holds the sub accountable for the risks inherent in performing its trade. When a subcontractor fails in their performance on the project, the contract enables the contractor to hold the sub accountable. We know the challenges of finding quality trade subcontractors, and that problems can arise during a project. Frequently, you can’t risk losing a sub over an isolated performance issue. We know the importance of holding your subs accountable for their performance while protecting the business relationships you’ve worked hard to build.
