This is a collection of the Levelset articles about collections in the Construction industry. The term collections refers to the multitude of methods that contractors and suppliers use to secure payment after a construction project as well as the laws and regulations that govern payment in construction.

Payment speeds are notoriously slow all across the construction industry. The long list of rules, the length of the payment chain, and the complex nature of construction projects themselves are just a few reasons why this is true. As expected, there is a long, long list of collections methods that all tiers of construction professionals can employ to free payment up if they are left unpaid after the work is done. They most commonly take the form of notices, claims, and liens; however, the term collections also spans a wide array of legal action after the project ends and preventive measures and best practices before the project begins.
