The contract provides important material terms and conditions relating to timely completion of the project, substantial completion of the project, payment and final inspections and punch list. In addition, warranty issues relating to material and labor for the project are also included within the contract. Most importantly, in the event of a dispute, the contract sets forth where the dispute will be adjudicated. For example, will it be in a Court or does it call for arbitration? Further, if it is in the Court, will it be a jury trial or bench trial? What jurisdiction? These are all very important issues that need to be negotiated before the project begins.
