In addition to the construction work itself, contracting is one of the most important parts of the project. The more detailed the contract, the better; Objects considered common sense should not be overlooked either. When using industrial forms, it is important to understand that different forms of contracts interact and work together. For example, the AIA form for an owner-architect contract supports the use of the AIA form for the owner-contracting contract. Therefore, if you use some kind of standard owner-contractor contract, you must ensure that a standard contract from the same source is also used for the owner-architect contract. Similarly, changes to a standard owner contractor should be taken into account when preparing the owner-architect contract and vice versa. The same consideration applies to changes in subcontracts between contractors and subcontractors, subcontractors and supplier orders. Owners have two ways to complete work on a project: directly hire their own staff or independent subcontractors. It is not an easy decision. However, some legal requirements cannot be changed by contract, even in writing. An example of this is the statute of limitations that determines the length of a lawsuit following a dispute.

As a general rule, parties can reduce this period (up to a minimum, usually never less than one year), but the parties cannot extend the period. Benjamin Franklin said, “Time is money.” Whichever page you`re on, reduce construction time by having a clear plan with this document. A construction contract is a legal document that details the parameters of a construction project. The content of the agreement depends on the nature of the project and the type of client. For example, your contractor contract for a private client would generally be different from a contract for a commercial client. Regardless of the project or the client, it is important to have a concrete contract from the start. The decisive distinction between a written contract and a contract that is not the case is that of the conditions that control or define the agreement of the parties. In the case of a well-written contract, the written terms and conditions carefully and clearly define the parties` agreement, their expectations and their respective risks and obligations.
