Do you know Contractors, Contracts and Construction?

84 Replies

I got a 10/10. (Disclosure; I own a construction company so I'd hope so)

Someone else got a 100% & didn't even let us know who they were? Come on that's a good score. Same with the 4 above 70%. There were some pretty technical terms in that quiz. Anything above 70% is pretty solid.

Degree in construction management and project manager for a commercial general contractor, but I got two wrong - the ones about liens. I guess we don't deal with liens much. I spend my time doing submittals, RFIs, documentation, as-builts, change orders and am just a piece of the 60mil project.

Licensed General Contractor .. I better know the answers. I had to click two times on the answers, so I can see where some people might end up getting a wrong answer. 

Result: 100%

Thanks for taking the quiz guys! I was aiming for challenging, but not over the top. Also, I wanted to touch on a subject I see lots of questions about on the forums and can be difficult to navigate especially for newbies and those without a construction background. 

Really good quiz. Had me pausing on force majeure. I got all right but I guessed on that one. Been building all my life and never heard of that one. So in reality I got 9/10. If that word had been in Spanish instead of French us Texas contractors with have got it no problem lol.

Agree. This has been a bad year. I've been looking into it since you taught me that phrase. You can teach an old dog after all. I thought heck yeah this quiz will be a breeze. It goes to show you that you never stop learning. 

90%. I got one of the lien questions wrong. Not surprising, since I've never had a lien placed on anything of mine! I had an advantage on a lot of the rest as I work in the utility industry and deal with developers and engineers all day.
