Construction

Sacks Law Group represents owners, owner’s representatives, developers, tenants, project managers and contractors in construction projects ranging from office buildouts to shopping center redevelopment to medical and multi-family and common facilities construction, including ground up construction. We assist in all contractual and legal aspects of the construction process, including:

  • General contractor’s agreements (including lump sum and cost-plus, with or without a guaranteed maximum price)
  • Construction management agreements
  • Architect’s agreements
  • Engineer’s agreements
  • Designer agreements
  • Design/build agreements
  • Utility agreements with municipalities

We often streamline engagements with engineers, architects and contractors through the use of master agreements adaptable to numerous projects for multiple properties under common ownership.

Representing a client with over 500 offices worldwide, we are member of a multi-disciplinary team which also includes architectural, engineering, project management, real estate and national brokerage.

Our team uses an integrated approach to project management from initial site identification to lease negotiation to construction contract negotiation to completion of construction, including review, negotiation and documentation of technical and legal issues such as ADA and other code compliance, base building/delivery condition including HVAC and electrical capacity and landlord lease covenants with respect to HVAC and electrical specifications.
