Standard Prime Agreement

ConsensusDocs has published standard prime agreement for construction owners and constructors providing a best practice industry standard contract with integrated general conditions where the payment is based upon the cost of the work and includes a guaranteed maximum price. Unlike the ConsensusDocs 500 CM At-Risk agreement that contemplates preconstruction services and a GMP amendment once the design is sufficiently complete, this agreement, “ConsensusDocs 230,” contemplates a GMP upon contract signing.


“The general terms and conditions integrated into this agreement are based upon the fair and best practice contractual terms that we recently updated in our most used contracts for design-bid-build in December of 2016. As ConsensusDocs has just reached its 10-year milestone with a track record of success, release of the 230 is just another example of how those in the industry using ConsensusDocs are better positioned to be ahead of the curve,” states Brian Perlberg, ConsensusDocs executive director.
