Prefab/Modular construction is growing and challenging our understandings of construction contracting. There is a growing debate how to buy prefab and modular: whether the common law or UCC applies, or which should.
· Perfect tender rule or substantial completion: what happens when the material is not as specified?
· Gap filler rule or last shot doctrine: what are the contract terms?
· Warranty differences and impact: accounting for the construction warranties?
· Changes and cancellations: is easy better or problematic?
· Choose one horse or straddle both: should we develop a special form contract?
· Is this a small or huge issue impact: what are the practical consequences and best practices?
AGC is hosting a debate featuring Corey Bronczyk (Arthur Chapman and AGC Contracts Committee) defending the common law position and Alexander Beeby (Larkin Hoffman) advocating for the UCC. This event will inform AGC’s Contracts Committee which oversees our form contracts and could lead to changes in our contract forms or a new form for prefab and/or modular projects.
This is a free hybrid event for AGC members. In-person capacity has now been reached for this event. All others are welcome to join via Zoom (link will be emailed closer to event date). Boxed lunches will be served following the event for in-person attendees.
