The legal rights and obligations of those involved in a construction project crystallize in the tendering phase and end well after the project is completed. During the construction process, those legal rights and obligations change and expand based on, for example, the contracts in place, the Builders Lien Act and the bonds that have been issued. In order to ensure that the project is built properly, on time and on budget, it is important that all involved know and understand their legal rights and obligations. This course is designed to provide those involved in the construction industry with the legal foundation to navigate through the tender and constructions phases of a project.
