A Building Construction Agreement is a written document between a property owner and a general contractor, specifying the construction, renovations, alterations, or other work to be done on the property owner's home or land. This document outlines which Parties will be involved, the price to be paid for the services provided, the rights of each Party, and the dates construction will begin and end. A Building Construction Agreement should be used by a Party on either side of the process of building, renovating, or altering a building or structure. Both Builders and Clients are benefited by having an agreement in writing to act as a blueprint to iron out any wrinkles and make all necessary plans for construction to be completed.
How to use this document
This document contains all of the information necessary to outline the important details of when and how construction will be taking place and the duties of both Parties during and after that process. This Agreement includes details such as identifying information about the Parties and where they are located, the Builder's contractor license number, the address of the work site where the construction will be taking place, detailed description of the work that will be done by the Builder including any improvements or additions the Builder will be making to the property, and the payment arrangement for how the Client will reimburse the Builder for their materials and time spent on the project. The Agreement also notes when construction is due to begin and when construction is due to be finished, whether that be a specific date or upon the occurrence of a particular event or milestone.
Once the document has been completed and the Parties have agreed to the specifics of the project, both Parties should sign the document and keep copies of the document for their own records. Further, the Parties should be sure to attach to the document any other paperwork or documents relevant to the project, such as blueprints, schematics, employee lists, or lists of materials that will be used in the project.
Construction projects and buildings are subject to both federal and state/local laws. If the Builder employs additional workers during the course of the construction project, they are required to meet the requirements of federal laws such as the Fair Labor Standards Act (establishes minimum wage, overtime pay, recordkeeping, and youth employment standards affecting employees) and the Federal Family and Medical Leave Act (requires covered employers to provide employees with job-protected and unpaid leave for qualified medical and family reasons). Further, public buildings are required to meet certain standards laid out by the Americans with Disabilities Act. The Parties should be sure to look into federal and local laws to be certain that their building project and labor practices comply.
