Michael Catania Co-Authors Defense Research Institute (DRI) Construction Law Committee Paper

Michael E.  Catania has co-authored a paper in conjunction with the Defense Research Institute (DRI) Construction Law Committee. The report analyzed and compared several important contractual issues in the ConsensusDocs 200 and AIA A101 and A201 standard contract documents. 

Because these documents so often are used, Defense Research Institute (DRI) Construction Law Committee thought it important to provide not only a summary of many of the important points in the fixed price general contract documents, but a comparison of the two. Specifically, DRI analyzed and compared the following from the AIA A101 and A201 and ConsensusDocs 200 standard contract document forms for the following issues, and then provided a brief analysis that provides commentary that helps readers determine the advantages and disadvantages in AIA’s and ConsensusDocs differing approaches on important contractual issues as well as similarities.
