Certain tricks and methods make sure that everyone leaves the table failing that they have a good deal.

Direct hire or sub contract:

Builders have two options for completing work on project direct hire own employees or sub contract the work to independent contractors which is not an easy decision to make. Sub contracting can offers warranties that can make your work easier, while hiring someone directly requires additional efforts, as far as over site and management is concerned. But direct hiring often gives the builder more control over cost and quality. Based on the scope of the project and relationship with sub contractors, the project manager will make decision based on what is most cost effective, efficient and timely.

Construction contract agreement:

The contract generally contained several sub sections or clauses or sometimes appended documents that defined the scope, item, terms and conditions of the construction agreement. The legal writing can be heavy and both the parties often involve a lawyer when dealing with specific documents.

Lump sum or fix price contract:

Lump sum or fixed price contract is the type of contract, where all construction related activities are regulated with a total fixed price agreement. These are favoured in situations when a clear scope and a defined schedule is negotiated and accepted. For e.g. if there is necessary to shift the liability to the builder and prevent changes in order for undetermined work then this type of contract is best suitable for the situation due to present risk, a contract holds some percentage cost.

Cost plus contract:

Actual cost, purchase, other expensed incurred from the construction work. Before the negotiation begins a specific expense amount must be included in cost plus type of contract.
