ConsensusDocs Offers Standard Contract Document for Prefabricated Construction

October 14, 2020

Prefabricated construction has been around for decades, but important contractual and legal issues have remained unaddressed in most construction contracts. The new ConsensusDocs 753 Standard Prefabricated Construction Contract provides an off-the-shelf solution that is unique to prefabricated construction.

The ConsensusDocs 753 agreement for prefabricated construction, which includes modular buildings, is between a Constructor and a Prefabricator. The agreement addresses the most common type of prefabricated construction, an off-site prefabrication of a component that is delivered and installed at the worksite.

Also addressed is application of the common law rather than the Uniform Commercial Code (UCC). In addition, industry standard definitions for prefabricator, prefabricator’s site, and a prefabricated Component are established. The agreement provides for specific provisions addressing concerns related to inspections and sensitive proprietary information and equipment involved in prefabrication.

MCAA members can save on their orders using the Discount Code: MCAA100. For more information, visit the ConsensusDocs website.

Great video of a flying factory. I'm curious how they dissemble the hoisting shed afterwards, but the safety and productivity gains are easily seen.
