What are the key components of a construction contract?

A well-drafted construction contract should cover the following key elements:

  • Scope of Work: What work will be be performed? What materials, labor, and equipment will be required to complete the project?
  • Timeline: When will construction start, and how will the parties decide when the project is finished? Will there be any milestones or deadlines? What happens if those deadlines aren't met? 
  • Payment Terms: How much will the project cost, and when are payments due? Who controls the funds involved? 
  • Insurance and Indemnification: Who is responsible if there is an accident or injury? 
  • Change Orders: What happens if you need to modify the project after construction is underway? 
  • Liens: What safeguards are in place to protect the owner from lien claims against the property?
  • Defaults and Remedies: Under what circumstances can a party terminate the contract? What remedies are available if a party doesn't perform?
