Writing work scopes

What you should include in your work scope is, clarifying the areas that the subcontractor might tell you later that it wasn't part of his deal. Pay attention to items that might be grey area between two different trades because if such an item exists, most probably both of those subcontractors are going to raise their hands up and refuse to do that scope and demand extra money from you. This can not only cost you money but delays as well. For instance, if you have welding shown between steel studs and structural frame somewhere, clarify if your sturctural steel or framing subcontrctor will do it. Include it in one of those work scopes. Other than the gray areas between two trades, you need to think about what will actually take place in the field and cover those items. For instance, the specifications may not tell you if field measuring for a certain trade is required or but you are the one who should clarify it. Or the protection of an item for example, after it is finished, such as an aluminum handrail. Or the coordination of putting backing on the wall for millwork for example. In addition, it is always good to have an exclusion section, so that whatever you excluded in one subcontractor's scope can be included somewhere else. i.e. electrical wiring and hookup of an operable partition, where you will need to specifically include in the electircal subcontractor's scope. Bottom line is, if you are the General Contractor on the job, it is your duty to coordinate trades and the general construction activities for every trade. If you dont, you can definitely expect that you will incur cost and schedule impacts because of everybody trying to make his own job easier and you will have nothing in your hand to make them do things in the way you want.
