In The Event Construction Materials Do Not Arrive


I was wondering if someone could share a contract clause or documentation that would help in adding to my own contract; the collection of paid expenses leading up to a date of install in which materials (supplied by the client) simply did no arrive. Is there such a thing? material default?

I will be billing a customer for time and expenses incurred in such scenario and they have agreed. However, I did not have such a clause in my contract and would like something for next time just in case.

Any help appreciated.. thanks!

When I GCed years ago, my contracts said something about HOs making timely decisions. I suppose If a HO held up the project, a change order would be written up, extending your completion date, and coving incurred expences.

Just add a clause that says something to the effect that any supplies/materials/products supplied by the HO must be on site & in useable/acceptable condition 48 hrs prior to them being needed or installed.
