A construction contract is a document that binds all the legalities and agreements of the contractor and the client about a specific project. It is used for the main purposes of enlisting all the things that the owner of the space to be constructed and the construction firm that is to do the project have agreed upon.
It includes all the items that are needed for the construction to be finished and the processes and guidelines that are needed to be followed by both parties during the entire duration of the construction project.

Importance of a Construction Contract
It is very important to have a construction contract even before the construction project starts for the following reasons:
- It helps the contractor know the needs of the client in terms of his or her vision regarding the output of the project.
- It will legally define all the rules that are needed to be followed by the contractor and the client which will possibly help in a smooth flow of construction activities.
- It will allow the contractor to have a supporting document in terms of the application and implementation of the processes that are needed for the construction which should always be included in a construction contract.
- It will assure both sides that all the items and materials needed for construction will be supplied at the right time so that the construction project will also be done at the expected time.
Having a construction contract will help protect the rights of both the contractor and the client. Be sure to browse through all the content of the construction contract as there are things that may not be changed once written in there depending on the agreement of the two parties involved in the process.
