To get a building built there needs to be a contract between the builder and client. Novation contracts are a new model of contract that some architects say may impact build quality. Others say when these risks are managed correctly, there’s less to worry about than first thought. In this episode of Hearing Architecture, we’re talking to Nick Lorenz, Sean McGivern, and Tom Heneker about the advantages and risk management required when working with Novation Contracts.
