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.
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.
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.
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.
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, visitwww.ConsensusDOCS.orgor call 866/925-DOCS.
