The people I've met through AGC have helped me both personally and professionally. Every contractor needs those resources and those relationships. If you want to be successful, well then, you need AGC.
At the AGC-ASA-ASC Joint Meeting in Rancho Mirage, CA, the three groups formally approved three new documents as part of the "Guidelines for a Successful Construction Project," found at (www.constructionguidelines.org). They are guidelines on Surety Bonding, Volatile Price Adjustment Clauses, and Building Information Modeling (BIM).
The guidelines cover topics such as bidding processes, pre-construction planning, and project execution. These three new documents are among the nearly 40 guidelines that can be found by accessing the complete "Guidelines for a Successful Construction Project" at www.constructionguidelines.org/pdf/Guidelines_Full.pdf. The Surety Bonding Guideline is Section C.5, the Volatile Price Adjustment Clauses is Section B.6, and the Building Information Modeling (BIM) Guideline is Section B.7.
