September 28, 2008, marks the one-year anniversary of ConsensusDOCS, which has become the first consensus standard contracts written by and for the construction industry.

Currently, more than 3,000 unique office locations with upwards of 50 people per location are using ConsensusDOCS on projects. There is also a steady stream of 75-100 users joining the program each month.

In 2007, ConsensusDOCS invited the construction industry to draft consensus standard contract documents as a group. In addition to producing a comprehensive library of contracts that address all project delivery methods, ConsensusDOCS introduced the first standard tri-party or integrated project delivery contract.

ConsensusDOCS further established itself as the leader in construction contracts with the release of the ConsensusDOCS 301 BIM Addendum June 30, 2008. The BIM Addendum is the first and only standard document to comprehensively address the legal ramifications of using Building Information Modeling.

Originally drafted and endorsed by 20 leading construction organizations, ConsensusDOCS has added American Wall and Ceiling Institute (AWCI), National Association of Electrical Distributors (NAED), as well as the endorsement of the Construction Management Association of America (CMAA) for the ConsensusDOCS 301 BIM Addendum.  In addition, the American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC), and the National Institute of Building Sciences (NIBS) actively contributed to the new ConsensusDOCS BIM Addendum.

Additionally, the industry has conducted hundreds of educational seminars and sessions on the documents, including more than 70 in-person education seminars and courses throughout the county and 10 national Webinars.

In celebration of its first anniversary, ConsensusDOCS has issued a Reference Kit CD available at the limited-time price of $92.87, which includes complete samples of 80+ documents and helpful commentary. For more information, visit www.ConsensusDOCS.org or call 866/925-DOCS.
