This document is a Building Construction Agreement which can be used by a property owner in its dealings with a general contractor where construction, renovations, alterations or other similar work is to be done to the property. This document outlines the identity of the Parties involved, the price for the services provided, the rights and obligations of each Party, and the start date and expected completion date of the construction. Either Party to the Building Construction Agreement may use this agreement where the service is for building, renovating, or altering a building or structure. A written agreement is beneficial to both the Builders and Clients as it acts as a blueprint that can be referred to understand all the plans for the construction to be completed.
It should be noted that a Building Construction Agreement is different from a mere Services Contract even though construction works can be categorised as a type of service. The fundamental difference is in the final work that is delivered to the client. Whereas in a mere services contract, the deliverables are not always tangible, (for example in a consulting services agreement where the deliverable is the consultation and advice given) in a Building Construction Agreement the deliverable is tangible as it is the completed building that has been constructed, altered or renovated. Hence, it is important to use a Building Construction Agreement where building works are concerned instead of using a services contract and attempting to tailor it to use for a building works.
This Building Construction Agreement should be used where the parties are operating within the jurisdiction of England and Wales.
