Kali ini paper saya yang dipresentasikan berjudul Formulating Standard Form of Construction Contract in Indonesian Context. Berikut adalah abstraknya.
Construction contract can be defined as a legally binding agreement between one party to another in doing construction business. It serves as the foundation in executing a construction project. If made and managed properly, it will minimize the appearance of potential disputes in construction projects.
