Ask Your Contractor: What is a Work Scope Agreement?

Ask Your Contractor: What is a Work Scope Agreement?

Our process stands out because it is unlike most contracting companies out there by focusing on excellence and our client’s experience.  We have found that the clients we work for do not pick us for our price. Instead they pick us for our attention to detail, quality of workmanship and the professional relationships we create.  We start this by first taking the time and effort to create a Work Scope Agreement (WSA) with our clients.

What is a Work Scope?

Our Work Scope Agreement (WSA) is an accurate and detailed scope of work. The scope of work clearly states which projects are included and what projects are not included. By using the owner’s design requests, budget constraints and preferences, the materials and finishes are selected, and a construction cost is calculated.

Why Do I Need It?

It starts your project off with full disclosure of your expectations, which makes any project run smoother. If you do decide to get another estimate, you can be certain that in fact you are comparing apples to apples. You can rest assured because our Work Scope Agreement is a comprehensive scope any experienced contractor can build by.

We want to start and will start each job knowing that everyone is on the same page. By starting a job knowing our clients budget, preferences, wants and needs we know there are no uncertainties. Callemail or fill out our contact form today to schedule your first WSA appointment!

    Why do you abbreviate to WSA while generally using "scope of work" in you descriptions?

    I suggest removing the parenthetical line about second estimates, awkward and sounds defensive.

    "budget" is misspelled in the last paragraph

    It’s excellent that you clarified how The materials and finishes are chosen, and a building cost is estimated utilizing the owner’s design specifications, financial limitations, and preferences. I’m hoping I may get a business contractor to assist me in constructing a warehouse for my small business. I’ll have to get in touch with a pro this week since I need a very precise layout. I appreciate your advise.

    Excellent explanation of how building costs are calculated based on the owner’s design preferences, financial constraints, and preferences for materials and finishing. I’m hoping to be able to work with a commercial contractor to help me build a warehouse for my small business. This week, I’ll need to contact a professional since I require a highly accurate layout. I value your recommendations.

    I’ve always believed that transparency and clarity are key components of any successful project, and your emphasis on creating a Work Scope Agreement (WSA) resonates with that philosophy. The commitment to excellence and the client’s experience is evident in the meticulous approach of outlining an accurate and detailed scope of work.

    The clarity provided by a Work Scope Agreement is invaluable. It not only sets clear expectations for the client but also ensures that everyone involved in the project is on the same page. I appreciate the emphasis on specifying which projects are included and, equally important, which ones are not. It’s this attention to detail that sets the stage for a smoother project execution.

    Your point about the WSA being a tool for clients to compare estimates is particularly insightful. In an industry where quotes can sometimes be challenging to decipher, having a comprehensive scope allows clients to make informed decisions. It ensures a fair comparison, eliminating ambiguity and allowing clients to make choices based on a clear understanding of what each contractor is offering.

    Starting a project with full disclosure of expectations not only instills confidence but also fosters a positive working relationship between the client and the contractor. I believe this transparency is a cornerstone for building trust in an industry where trust is paramount.

    Overall, your commitment to professionalism and the emphasis on creating a solid foundation for each project through the Work Scope Agreement is commendable. It’s an approach that undoubtedly contributes to the success and satisfaction of both clients and contractors alike.

    Best regards,
