Design Only vs Design With Construction vs Construction Only Contracts

There are three different contracts that you can have a client sign:


  1. A Design Only Contract – after design is complete, the sales person would then have the client sign a separate Construction Only Contract
  2. A Design WITH Construction Contract – the contract is for BOTH the design and construction – no additional contract for construction is necessary
  3. A Construction Only Contract – Design is not part of this contract.


Some of our members use method 1 when selling, some use method 2.  Some have the design only contract signed but the job does not go through to construction.  Then there are others who only sell construction, no design.  We use this method to be able to make comparisons across all the membership.
