CONTRACTUAL SUPERPOWERS FOR CONSTRUCTION SUBCONTRACTORS

A managed service for Construction Contract Reviews, Contract Administration, and Dispute Management.

  • Securing Contractual Confidence
  • Project Margin Protection
  • To Reduce Company Overheads
  • Make and Keep More Profit

GONE ARE THE DAYS OF A FAIR CONTRACT...

The reality of the construction industry is that 99% of the contracts are either client written “hostile” contracts or highly amended standard contracts. The further down the chain you are, the more the risk is pushed onto you.

Unreasonable Terms

These contracts often times are asking you to sign up to unlimited liability, consequential damages, never ending rewarranty periods and extremely tight time bars (to name a few issues).

Even for smaller value contracts, signing up to the wrong terms can potentially be catastrophic for your business.  

Expensive Recruitment

The problem for Subcontractors is they cannot afford to pay the recruitment and salary costs for Lawyers, Contracts Experts and Contract Admins with the bell curve nature of projects. 

What do you do with these people between projects?

This means that senior management has to spend considerable time doing the reviews and contract management themselves. 

With time constraints and lack of expertise this can lead to mistakes and omissions which can put your company at risk.

Become Contractually Savvy

We help construction subcontractors avoid contractual landmines, save money and upskill their workforce.

Believe it or not, Clients and Tier 1’s feel assured that you know what you are doing when you are commercially astute. 

They feel like they are dealing with professional and capable company that knows its service inside out. 

Our process begins with our "Pre-Award" Service

Our proven contracts review framework are the initial steps we take as your dedicated contract specialists.

CONTRACTS REVIEWED

We review the details of your terms & conditions, rates & preambles, tender instructions & all associated documents. 

We find the risks and present them in a way that is easy to understand, doesn’t require you to do more work and allows you take actionable commercial decisions to reduce you company’s contractual risk.

DEPARTURES PREPARED

Quantum has the benefit of learning from reviewing thousands of contracts for all types of Subcontractors across all types of Constructions Sectors.

We know how to word departures so that they get accepted. We know what gets accepted and what doesn’t. We know how many is too many.

Video Reviews

We know that you are busy and the last thing you want to do if have to spend more time “reviewing” the review. 

That’s why we prepare a 5 – 10 minute video for every contract review. 

This allows you get up to speed on all the contractual landmines very quickly so you can spend more time on high value activities. 

LUNCH & LEARNS

This service is everything in Quantum “Pre-Award” Service PLUS all the items below. 

1. Contractual Kick Off Meetings

The goal here is to upskill site staff and close the gap between delivering the project and delivering contractually. 

We download everything in your contract (Delay Events, Variations, Time Bars, Client Instructions etc) and give an easy to understand presentation to your site team so they know exactly what they need to do contractually. 

2. Contractual Adherence Checklists

Contracts are written by lawyers for lawyers.

Let us dig through the all the pages of the Contract and create a checklist of what you actually need to do, what not to do and what you need to submit. 

3. Change Management

No need to worry about another “system” that you need to implement. 

We bring our own system, people and processes to make sure that we capture all delays and scope changes on your project. 

4. Contractual Notice & Letter Prep

Getting your contractual notices in on time, with the right info and presented professionally is paramount to your success in making sure you are covered contractually. 

5. Variation Preparation

Getting variations rejected (which impacts cashflow) is a major reason that subcontractors can go out of business or be forced to agree to smaller sums that they are entitled to. 

Let us make sure that your variations are submitted to the highest quality so your next project is a success. 

6. Contractual Advice

From time to time, you may specific contractual advice which is unique to your company and circumstances. 

We’re there to help. 

7. Preparation of EOT/ Disruption and Acceleration Claims

Projects don’t always run smoothly and often times, its not your fault. 

Its important to present you case in a clear, organised and detailed way.

We have experts on hand to help. 

8. Dispute Management via non-legal avenues

Not every situation needs lawyers. If we can resolve the issue without resulting to courts & ruining relationships, that’s how we’d like to proceed. 

Getting it wrong can, and for many businesses does, mean catastrophic failure.

9. Adjudication Submissions & Defense

If we can’t help you resolve a dispute amicably and your case is strong, we’ll help you prepare and manage the adjudication process to (hopefully) a successful outcome. 

On the flip side, if another company submits an adjudication against you, we’ll help you defend it.
