TOP TEN Construction Clauses - The “Work” Clause

Posted: March 25, 2015

This clause defines the scope of work in a construction project and the definition varies by source. For instance, American Institute of Architects Document A201-2007 defines "Work" as "construction and services required by the Contract Documents, whether completed or partially completed, and includes all other labor, materials, equipment and services provided or to be provided by the Contractor to fulfill the Contractor’s obligations." The ConsensusDocs Standard Agreement similarly defines "Work" as "construction and services necessary or incidental to fulfill the Constructor’s obligations for the Project in conformance with this Agreement and the other Contract Documents. The Work may refer to the whole Project or only a part of the Project if work is also being performed by the Owner or Others."
