OWNER’S PRELIMINARY REQUIREMENTS. Unless otherwise agreed, prior to Alpha commencing work, the owner shall, at their sole cost and expense: complete engineering, survey, or other plans for the project; obtain any federal, state, and municipal approvals or permits required for Alpha to perform the contemplated work; provide a work site capable of supporting and permitting Alpha’s Work to occur without any additional, ancillary or incidental steps by Alpha not explicitly identified in the Invoice or Proposal; clear the project site prior to construction of any debris, equipment, personal items and/or construction materials that would materially interfere with Alpha’s performance of the work. The owner’s failure to meet the conditions identified above, on or before the date specified above, for any reason other than Alpha’s negligence, shall constitute a breach of this agreement and result in damages as provided in the Damages section.
CHANGES TO THE WORK. Without invalidating the contract, the Owner or Local Code Official may order changes to the work, including, but not limited to, additions, deletions, or modifications. Changes to work may be made as the work progresses. The owner agrees that any changes to the system installed by Alpha that differ from the written Invoice or Proposal shall be conclusive proof of the owner’s authorization to change the system from the Invoice or Proposal. The owner will pay all costs associated with change orders and receive any cost reduction associated with the deletion and/or substitution of work. Alpha is not liable for existing conditions related to plumbing, heating, or gas. The owner will pay all costs that may occur if necessary or if required by the local Code Official to upgrade to the current plumbing, heating, or gas code for a safe and proper working system. This Proposal is based on visible conditions, and the owner agrees that the price may vary due to non-visible plumbing conditions.
COMPLETION. Alpha will complete the work in the Proposal and any change orders as quickly as practicable. Owner agrees, however, that Alpha shall not be responsible for any damages to the owner, either direct or incidental, arising from any delays in completing the work before any date discussed between Owner and Alpha unless explicitly agreed to in writing between Alpha and Owner. Work dates are subject to change due to unforeseen circumstances and will be rescheduled promptly.
DAMAGES.

The owner agrees that any breach of this contract shall result in damages to Alpha, including all direct and incidental damages arising from the breach. The owner agrees that Alpha’s damages shall include, but not be limited to, Alpha’s time, resources, equipment, and overhead used in mobilization, purchasing materials, and preparing plans, Alpha’s loss of reasonably anticipated profits on this project or other projects occasioned by owner’s breach or termination of this agreement, Alpha’s losses arising from delays during the prosecution of this Proposal awaiting owner’s receipt of any plans, approvals, or permits for Alpha to complete the work not arising from Alpha’s negligence; and Alpha’s reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs associated with any legal action as a result of owner’s breach, including any claim for mechanic’s lien.
PERMIT FEES. Permit fees are not included unless otherwise noted in the Invoice or Proposal and will be at an additional cost the owner agrees to pay.
TERMINATION. Alpha may terminate the contract either for cause, arising from the owner’s inability or refusal to pay invoices on a timely basis, or from the owner’s failure to agree to a change order arising from differing site conditions identified after commencing the work that makes the contemplated work unpractical or impossible to perform. The owner may terminate the contract prior to completing the work but shall pay Alpha for completed work that has not been paid and for all resulting direct and incidental costs and damages identified in Damages. The owner shall pay Alpha for materials purchased specifically for this Invoice or Proposal.

Unless specifically indicated, the work contemplated by Alpha presumes that no permits are required for any environmental impacts, including, but not limited to, subsurface conditions, wetlands impacts, hazardous or solid waste (s) for the work contained in the Invoice or Proposal; alternatively, the owner will, before the date identified in Section 2, procure all such permits. If Alpha believes permits are required to complete all work in the Invoice or Proposal. In that case, Alpha shall inform the Owner when Alpha learns or reasonably believes any approval or permit is required. The owner shall retain appropriate professionals to review the situation and submit the required applications. The owner agrees to defend and indemnify Alpha for any environmental claims arising from Alpha’s work performance where the alleged violation arises from missing or inadequate ecological permit (s) or existing conditions.
