Colorado Construction Contract Lawyers

At Jorgensen, Brownell & Pepin, P.C., our Colorado construction contract attorneys have created thousands of construction contracts over the last 30 years. We have contract forms for every level of project, from a simple floor refinishing to the initial construction of complex multi-story mixed use commercial buildings. For the complex projects, we have available nationally recognized standardized contract packages from both the Associated General Contractors of America (AGC) and the American Institute of Architects (AIA) to best assist you with your construction contract needs. We have worked with many sub and general contractors to iron out effective but not scary contracts for their everyday use.

These contracts address important but often neglected issues regarding:

  • Timing
  • Access
  • Warranties
  • Collections remedies
  • Attorney's fees provisions

Designs are never perfect and plans are never final. Unexpected events, changed conditions, compliance with building codes, technological advances, new ideas, the price of labor and materials and endless possibilities may call for changes to a construction contract and the modification of a contractor's work in one way or another. We will develop contracts that help you address change orders and ensure your interests are protected.

To enlist our help, call (720) 809-8310 for an initial consultation.

Allowances & Land Owners

An "allowance" in a construction contract is an amount specified for certain items of work - usually materials or fixtures, but the details are not determined at the time of contracting. Allowances can be practical if a contract item has not yet been chosen or specified. However, the general contractor's best interest is to minimize the cost of the project (in a competitive bid situation) by intentionally under-estimating allowances. Under-estimated allowances can be dangerous to the buyer because they can easily add up to a huge cost over-run. If the value of the allowance is less than the amount needed to make the actual purchase for an item, then the money to purchase the item plus possible change order percentage charges comes out of your pocket.
