This CLE webinar will provide construction counsel with best practices and guidance on crafting statements of work (SOWs) and performance provisions that delineate appropriate provisions for deliverables, scope, schedule, and management, among other necessary provisions. The panel will advise counsel on mitigating future risks related to the most litigated portions of a construction agreement.


An SOW or performance provisions for a construction project help construction companies and construction asset owners (clients, contractors, subcontractors) outline some key elements of the upcoming or current project. The level of detail covered in an SOW can vary, and an SOW is now a ubiquitous and yet relatively undefined term across all forms of project management.

The makeup of your SOW can depend on a company's practices, the wants and needs of the asset owner, and several other factors. At a high level, the purpose of an SOW is to define essential elements of a contract to clarify expectations of a project party, including details of the scope of work, deliverables, timeline, and management.

Listen to our authoritative panel discusses crafting SOWs to mitigate risks of future contract disputes by providing best practices for drafting provisions that will be enforceable in the future. The need for this level of detail is clear, as vague SOWs are the preeminent source of construction contract dispute and litigation.



  1. Types of SOWs
    1. Design and detail
    2. Level of effort, time, and materials/unit rate
    3. Performance based
  2. Scope
  3. Schedule
  4. Management
  5. Best practices


The panel will review these and other topics:

  • What types of SOWs should construction counsel consider and what are best options for a particular project?
  • How should counsel incorporate proper terminology into deliverable provisions and scope?
  • What types of options should counsel provide in scheduling to mitigate risk of delays?
  • How should counsel address construction project management in an SOW?
