Construction contracts – the foundation of your building projects
Just as you would not put up walls and a roof without a solid foundation, neither should you wait before negotiating a solid contract. Construction agreements are the cornerstone upon which the success of any project relies. Our attorneys write thorough contracts that cover such issues as:
- Parties to the contract
- Penalties for missed deadlines
- Payment terms
- Type of work ordered
- Building materials, including types and quality
- Labor matters
- Insurance for the construction site, materials and workers
- Right to access and inspections of the worksite
- Force majeure and nonperformance
- Arbitration and choice of venue, in case of dispute
In addition to these broad terms, different aspects of your project require the inclusion of specific, detailed provisions.
Construction industry players
Typically, a large-scale development project involves a long list of players, each of which must have a contract to cover its specific role, rights and obligations. For example, depending on the scope and nature of your project, you may need separate contracts governing various related construction issues, including, bid bonds, payment and performance bonds, construction management, etc.
