This unit explores the nature of construction contracts, including standard forms of contract, an examination of important clauses, and contract management roles and responsibilities. Topics covered in this unit include conditions of contract, contract liabilities and responsibilities, common contractual issues, and requests for variation, delays and disruptions. Through a range of applied activities and case studies, you will be exposed to the processes and duties involved in delivering construction contracts. You will analyse problem-solving and conflict resolution techniques to resolve common contractual issues and use critical thinking to examine ways to avoid common construction contract pitfalls.
