Commercial Contract

A skillfully crafted construction contract can protect your interests, minimise risks, and increase profitability. As a specialist building and construction law firm, Contracts Specialists can prepare and review commercial contracts for you. We will work with you to detect, assess, and avoid legal issues before they arise.

We can also explain common issues across a wide range of commercial and construction management contracts.

Subcontract Agreement

A Subcontractor Agreement between a builder/contractor and subcontractor outlines the perimeters of specialist work to be done for the construction project.

As specialist building and construction lawyers, we can help you review or craft subcontract agreements, as well as other standard construction contracts, to ensure that they will have your best interest in mind.

Lump Sum Contract

Under a Lump Sum contract, a “fixed price” for the work to be done is agreed upon by the client and contractor before the work begins.

A Lump Sum construction contract can be more of a risk to the contractor as there are fewer mechanisms to allow them to vary their price. Contracts Specialists can help you determine if this type of contract will beneficial to you, and we can also advice you on provisions you should include.

Cost Plus Contract

A Cost Plus Contract states that a client agrees to reimburse a construction company for building expenses such as labour and materials, plus additional payment usually stated as a percentage of the contract's full price.

An alternative to Lump Sum agreements, this allows flexibility and transparency for the homeowner and reduces the risk for a contractor since a a profit is guaranteed.
