Agreement Between Owner and Trade Contractor

(Updated 2017) Purchase Options

This standard agreement allows an Owner to contract with a Constructor (aka builder, general contractor, design-builder, construction manager) when a Construction Management (CM) agency is used (and not a single constructor). This agreement can be used for multi prime, CM, Agency, or Owner acting as its own CM. Because this is an Owner’s agreement for trade contract work, this agreement blends provisions normally seen in prime agreements as well as subcontract provisions. The general conditions include the responsibilities allocated to each party and address critical construction law contract issues. The contract issues include: the parties relationship and responsibilities to each other, definitions of key terms, scope of work, each party’s representatives, payment, cost of services, contract duration, indemnification (defend and hold harmless against all losses), insurance and bond, termination, dispute resolution and mitigation, and more. The included construction law contract issues are fair for each party. This contractual arrangement is appropriate when construction management services are provided externally by a CM or by the Owner itself.
