CCR Base Services/Optional Services:
CCR clients are only obligated at a minimum for CCR Base Consultant Services, a half-day introduction meeting at a cost of $850, plus expenses. All of the other CCR Consultant Services are Optional Consultant Services and are only provided and paid for if our clients continue to move through the Implementation/Positioning Stage to the Project Specific Stage (on one or more Projects). As such, if our CCR clients are not getting along or not working well together, lose interest in the process/form of project delivery/agreement or each other, then the CCR Multi-Party Consulting Agreement
can be terminated at any Stage. Regardless, all CCR clients will be better positioned in the market when armed with the knowledge CCR provides. CCR clients will eventually be able to access a CCR or CCR-affiliated website to review timely information from the front-lines of the BIM/Collaborative Project Delivery/Agreements/Lean Construction Revolution!
Sharing costs, risks and rewards: Under the CCR Multi-Party Consulting Agreement, all CCR clients share equally in the payment of CCR's fees and expenses. Different payment arrangements can be made between our clients but we highly recommend sharing clients share the costs because this will promote the all-for-one-and-one-for-all mentality that the CCR clients will need to develop to succeed as collaborative partners.
Clients Collaborate Right From The Start: CCR clients learn collaboratively together, as they work alongside trusted business partners to prepare and position themselves to take advantage of these exciting new tools and to pursue specific projects as parties to ConsensusDOCS 300.
Participation of Clients' Key Advisors: CCR invites extended Staff, Legal Advisors, Risk Managers, IT Staff or Consultants, and all other key advisors of CCR's clients to participate. All of our clients' relevant decision-makers, stakeholders and professional advisors, both in-house and outside, are expected to participate, where appropriate, under CCR's Multi-Party Consulting Agreement.
Building Strategic Alliances: CCR's clients will use the Multi-Party Consulting Agreement to build strategic alliances with one another. Construction owners will have the opportunity test their relationship with prospective architects and constructors and vice versa. Prospective project participants can get 'engaged' to, or extensively interview and evaluate one another through the CCR Multi-Party Consultant Services before getting 'married' by signing a ConsensusDOCS 300. This is particularly important given that the ConsensusDOCS 300 represents a completely new way of doing business, a new construction project delivery method and new agreement obligations.
The Ultimate Marketing Tool: CCR clients will find the Multi-Party Consulting Agreement to be an excellent vehicle for marketing their services to one another and to the broader construction industry market. The Owner will enhance its ability to identify and select highly competent architects and constructors, while those entities will significantly enhance their ability to get hired on specific projects. The collaborative process the clients will experience via the Multi-Party Consulting Agreement will be far superior to any marketing meeting or RFP driven interview. Instead, the architect and constructor's participation in a CCR Multi-Party Consulting Agreement allows the architect and constructor to extensively audition for a place at the ConsensusDOCS 300 table through a series of collaborative meetings. In that environment, the prospective construction owner, architect and constructor will learn whether their co-collaborators are knowledgeable and trustworthy business partners. Fundamentally, participation in a CCR Multi-Party Consulting Agreement will allow the parties to demonstrate their competence, compatibility and commitment to one another. Owners, architects and constructors will all increase their chances of launching a successful project if they pursue the opportunity via CCR's unique, cutting-edge form of collaborative project delivery. Ultimately, all project stakeholders will experience improved quality, time savings, reduced risks and, above all, money saved! In the current economic environment can your company afford NOT to hire CCR?
