ConsensusDocs Publishes Industry's First Lean Addendum Standard Contract Document; Free Webinar on Sept. 28 Webinar Scheduled

Sep 07, 2018

The ConsensusDocs 305 is an industry first document to facilitate lean tools without the need to sign a multi-party IPD agreement

NECA Value Added Services provider ConsensusDocs published the industry’s first Lean Addendum standard contract document. The ConsensusDocs 305 utilizes lean tools and processes without an Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) agreement. Not all owners may procure design and construction services with an IPD or integrated lean project delivery (ILPD) agreement. The Lean Addendum provides a contractual mechanism for owners, architects, engineers, general contractors, and subcontractors alike to take advantage of lean construction efficiencies and memorialize in writing a more collaborative and cooperative culture on projects.

NECA has participated in the ConsensusDocs Coalition since their founding and endorses these contracts because of the fair and open way they are developed with organizations representing the entire industry.

NECA Members can receive up to a 20% discount when registering their account with ConsensusDocs — view the ConsensusDocs Value Added Services page to learn more and register today.
