Understand the Most Important Rules & Regulations Affecting Educational Institutions When They Enter into a Construction Contract

Contracting for building or remodeling a facility is difficult and building an educational facility is even more difficult. Just ironing out the details of what exactly is needed and the number of decisions which typically have to be made rather early in the process makes it even more challenging. Typically, the architect or engineer will be the first call an educational institution will make. Should they be the first call, however, is an open question.

Complying with the seemingly never-ending laws, regulations, and rules coming from the state capital and DC have become a full-time job at most educational institutions. Often, that job requires multiple people and even entire staff. Often the most difficult task for those compliance professionals is to understand what exactly is needed by the rules. To be in compliance, you have to know not only what the rule is but how that rule applies and what the application of the rule looks like.

When it comes to contracting for construction services, compliance can be a little tricky. First, often it's difficult to know exactly what rules apply. Second, to understand how the rule applies, you need to know who enforces the rule. Third, educational institutions will often be faced with having to deal with new regulators or agencies with enforcement powers than they are used to dealing with. Finally, you should know the way a compliant construction projects looks like, when it is in a school or campus.

This presentation by attorney Zach Jones addresses these issues and more by walking you through many of the most important rules and regulations affecting educational institutions when they enter into a contract for construction. You will gain valuable understanding of the major rules and regulations affecting educational institutions contracting for construction services. The session will also explain the steps to ensure construction projects comply with regulations and strategies to mitigate issues of potential non-compliance as they arise during design and construction.
