Learn how many prime contractors and subcontractors have become more efficient in creating a master standard agreement with terms and conditions, and then issue individual work orders for each project or subcontract work scope.

ConsensusDocs just published a new Standard Master Subcontract Agreement and Project Work Order (ConsensusDocs 755 and 756 respectively) that create best practice templates for master subcontracting that prime contractors and subcontractors can use immediately. Don’t continue to waste time repeatedly negotiating complex legal terms with the same parties, rather empower your teams to focus on project price and scope.
