Construction projects small and large all depend on business contracts for the work to be performed according to the plan. There are many different crafts involved in all construction projects, including more than just the construction professionals working on the ground. All construction projects are built according to blueprints that must be drawn up by engineers and architects long before the physical work ever begins. And, the entire process of getting a project completed is done by a series of contracts indicating who will be the designated entity responsible for what specific element of the construction. Electricians, painters, brick layers, and carpenters are all different crafts and their performance responsibilities are all laid out in sub-contracts in association with the overall primary project agreement.
What this means is the legal component to a construction project is extensive from the very beginning for a commercial build because the particulars of who will be providing the manpower for specific components of the process must be worked out in advance. All of the paperwork and filing requirements must be complete before even a shovel of dirt is moved. Ownership or leasing of a property must also be established as well before any work can begin. There are always many legal issues that could arise between contractors and sub-contractors in a major project, and having all of the terms and conditions governing the relationship spelled out in writing is vital for cohesion in the construction process. While it is true that residential construction agreements can begin and be completed by a general oral contract, even a project as simple as building a single-dwelling home requires significant legal work beforehand.
It is always a good decision to consult with an experienced construction contract lawyer before beginning any building project. Having a reputable construction attorney means that all licences and permits can be acquired well in advance of beginning work, and any problems during the process will be governed by a written agreement.
