The Door and Hardware Institute (DHI) has joined the ConsensusDOCS coalition, which creates standard contract documents for use by all participants in the construction industry.

"DHI’s base of more than 5,000 professional members representing contract door and hardware distributors, manufacturers, and independent sales agents across the U.S., Canada and abroad," according to a ConcensusDocs release.

DHI joins 23 other leading construction industry associations in support of the ConsensusDOCS contract documents.

ConsensusDOCS contracts are the first and only industry standard contracts written and endorsed by 24 leading construction organizations. Offering a catalog of more than 90 contract documents covering all methods of project delivery, ConsensusDOCS contracts incorporate fair risk allocation and best practices to represent the project’s best interests.
