What are the basics of forming a contract?

People in the construction industry know that many of the most important deals that they ever make are based primarily upon a handshake. Trust is the foundation of success in the California construction industry and even though most people would never intentionally put that trust or their reputation in question, a deal that simply sealed by a handshake leaves a lot to be desired, in that it leaves open a lot of questions that could become the basis for a lawsuit.

Some construction contract disputes may be resolved informally

For people in the fast-paced construction industry in California, the saying "time is money" has never been more true. Small construction firms in California have to juggle many different duties just to stay on top of their projects, bids and other business matters, so nobody has time for getting dragged into court for litigation. Moreover, when the issue at hand is a contract dispute, the contract itself may not be able to quickly or simply solve the problem. For this reason alone, the time, hassle and expense of going to court can be a major burden for construction businesses, which is why they may try to avoid litigation wherever possible.

New Google campus construction shows innovative approach

Not surprisingly, California leads the way when it comes to innovation in the digital age, but this innovation can also be seen in the numerous progressive and and state-of-the-art construction and civil engineering projects across the state. One of the latest such examples is currently being constructed in Mountain View, where Google is in the midst of construction on their new campus and headquarters.

Those who do it themselves still rely on consultants

Entrepreneurs in Southern California don't reach success by sitting around and waiting for others to take charge; they do it themselves. Successful start-up companies and more established businesses generally both have something in common, i.e., owners and managers who aren't afraid to roll up their sleeves and take action. Being proactive and aggressive in the business world is a great attribute, but even the most hands-on businessmen know that they can't do everything themselves.
