Construction contracts seem to get lengthier every year. All contractors should be aware of all the terms relevant to their contract. This usually includes terms in the prime contract, the plans, the specifications, general conditions, construction manuals, exhibits, addenda and any number of other documents. You must read it all and understand it all. Otherwise, you may be agreeing to terms that could put your company out of business. Plus, you may think you are protected by your bid, but that may not be true. Unless your bid terms are made a part of your contract they will probably not be enforced, and if the bid terms conflict with the contract documents they may be ignored.
