    Construction contract creation

    Massey staff have expertise in drafting building contracts so that the contract is more succinct and easily interpreted.

    Dispute over a construction contract can incur large amounts of money and time. This delays works, increases costs and strains relationships.

    Contracts can be populated with risk assignment clauses as required for each project.
