3.2 Authority To Sign. Each party promises to the other party that it has the authority to enter into this Contract and to perform all of its obligations under this Contract.

3.3 Coach Has Right To Give Client Work Product. The Coach promises that it owns the work product, that the Coach is able to give the work product to the Client, and that no other party will claim that it owns the work product. If the Coach uses employees or subcontractors, the Coach also promises that these employees and subcontractors have signed contracts with the Coach giving the Coach any rights that the employees or subcontractors have related to the Coach's background IP and work product.

3.4 Coach Will Comply With Laws. The Coach promises that the manner it does this job, its work product, and any background IP it uses comply with applicable U.S. and foreign laws and regulations.

3.5 Work Product Does Not Infringe.

6.1 Overview. This Contract imposes special restrictions on how the Client and the Coach must handle confidential information. These obligations are explained in this section.

6.2 The Client's Confidential Information. While working for the Client, the Coach may come across, or be given, Client information that is confidential. This is information like customer lists, business strategies, research & development notes, statistics about a website, and other information that is private. The Coach promises to treat this information as if it is the Coach's own confidential information. The Coach may use this information to do its job under this Contract, but not for anything else. For example, if the Client lets the Coach use a customer list to send out a newsletter, the Coach cannot use those email addresses for any other purpose. The one exception to this is if the Client gives the Coach written permission to use the information for another purpose, the Coach may use the information for that purpose, as well. When this Contract ends, the Coach must give back or destroy all confidential information, and confirm that it has done so. The Coach promises that it will not share confidential information with a third party, unless the Client gives the Coach written permission first. The Coach must continue to follow these obligations, even after the Contract ends. The Coach's responsibilities only stop if the Coach can show any of the following: (i) that the information was already public when the Coach came across it; (ii) the information became public after the Coach came across it, but not because of anything the Coach did or didn't do; (iii) the Coach already knew the information when the Coach came across it and the Coach didn't have any obligation to keep it secret; (iv) a third party provided the Coach with the information without requiring that the Coach keep it a secret; or (v) the Coach created the information on its own, without using anything belonging to the Client.

6.3 Third-Party Confidential Information. It's possible the Client and the Coach each have access to confidential information that belongs to third parties. The Client and the Coach each promise that it will not share with the other party confidential information that belongs to third parties, unless it is allowed to do so. If the Client or the Coach is allowed to share confidential information with the other party and does so, the sharing party promises to tell the other party in writing of any special restrictions regarding that information.


Neither party is liable for breach-of-contract damages that the breaching party could not reasonably have foreseen when it entered this Contract.


8.1 Overview. This section transfers certain risks between the parties if a third party sues or goes after the Client or the Coach or both. For example, if the Client gets sued for something that the Coach did, then the Coach may promise to come to the Client's defense or to reimburse the Client for any losses.

8.2 Client Indemnity. In this Contract, the Coach agrees to indemnify the Client (and its affiliates and their directors, officers, employees, and agents) from and against all liabilities, losses, damages, and expenses (including reasonable attorneys' fees) related to a third-party claim or proceeding arising out of: (i) the work the Coach has done under this Contract; (ii) a breach by the Coach of its obligations under this Contract; or (iii) a breach by the Coach of the promises it is making in Section 3 (Representations).

8.3 Coach Indemnity. In this Contract, the Client agrees to indemnify the Coach (and its affiliates and their directors, officers, employees, and agents) from and against liabilities, losses, damages, and expenses (including reasonable attorneys' fees) related to a third-party claim or proceeding arising out of a breach by the Client of its obligations under this Contract.


9.1 Assignment​. This Contract applies only to the Client and the Coach. Neither the Client nor the Coach can assign its rights or delegate its obligations under this Contract to a third-party (other than by will or intestate), without first receiving the other's written permission.

9.2 Arbitration. As the exclusive means of initiating adversarial proceedings to resolve any dispute arising under this Contract, a party may demand that the dispute be resolved by arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association in accordance with its commercial arbitration rules.

9.3 Modification; Waiver. To change anything in this Contract, the Client and the Coach must agree to that change in writing and sign a document showing their contract. Neither party can waive its rights under this Contract or release the other party from its obligations under this Contract, unless the waiving party acknowledges it is doing so in writing and signs a document that says so.

9.4. Noticies.

(a) Over the course of this Contract, one party may need to send a notice to the other party. For the notice to be valid, it must be in writing and delivered in one of the following ways: personal delivery, email, or certified or registered mail (postage prepaid, return receipt requested). The notice must be delivered to the party's address listed at the end of this Contract or to another address that the party has provided in writing as an appropriate address to receive notice.

(b) The timing of when a notice is received can be very important. To avoid confusion, a valid notice is considered received as follows: (i) if delivered personally, it is considered received immediately; (ii) if delivered by email, it is considered received upon acknowledgement of receipt; (iii) if delivered by registered or certified mail (postage prepaid, return receipt requested), it is considered received upon receipt as indicated by the date on the signed receipt. If a party refuses to accept notice or if notice cannot be delivered because of a change in address for which no notice was given, then it is considered received when the notice is rejected or unable to be delivered. If the notice is received after 5:00pm on a business day at the location specified in the address for that party, or on a day that is not a business day, then the notice is considered received at 9:00am on the next business day.

9.5 Severability. This section deals with what happens if a portion of the Contract is found to be unenforceable. If that's the case, the unenforceable portion will be changed to the minimum extent necessary to make it enforceable, unless that change is not permitted by law, in which case the portion will be disregarded. If any portion of the Contract is changed or disregarded because it is unenforceable, the rest of the Contract is still enforceable.

9.6 Signatures. The Client and the Coach must sign this document using Bonsai's e-signing system. These electronic signatures count as originals for all purposes.

9.7 Governing Law. The validity, interpretation, construction and performance of this document shall be governed by the laws of the United States of America.

9.8 Entire Contract. This Contract represents the parties' final and complete understanding of this job and the subject matter discussed in this Contract. This Contract supersedes all other contracts (both written and oral) between the parties.

Working as a demolition contractor means more than just tearing things down. In many cases, you'll also be responsible for putting together a demolition proposal outlining the work that needs to be done. A demolition proposal can help you win new business and ensure you're paid fairly for your work.

In this article, we'll take a look at what goes into a demolition proposal and how you can put one together for your next project.

What exactly is a demolition proposal?

A demolition proposal is a document that is submitted to a client to get approval for the demolition of a structure.

This document outlines the entire demolition process, from start to finish. It makes it clear what is going to be demolished, as well as any safety or environmental concerns that need to be taken into account. It also includes a detailed timeline of the demolition process and an estimate of the total project price.

Sometimes, a demolition proposal can also include a site plan that shows where the debris from the demolition will be taken. This is especially important if the client is looking to have the site cleared and ready for new construction.

That said, a few reasons why a proposal can be crucial include:

  • It helps to ensure that both the demolition contractors and the client are on the same page from the start.
  • Putting together a well-thought-out proposal can help avoid any misunderstandings or surprises down the road.
  • It can also give the client a sense of confidence in the contractor's ability to safely and efficiently carry out the work.

What should you include in a demolition proposal?

We'll use an example to illustrate the different elements that should be included in a demolition proposal.

Let's say you're a demolition contractor who has been approached by a real estate developer to demolish an old office building that they own.

The first step in putting together your proposal would be to do a walk-through of the building with the developer. This is where you would assess what needs to be demolished and get an idea of the scope of the project. 

Your proposal might include this:

Proposed Work: The following is a list of the proposed work to be completed for the demolition of the Smith House.

  • Remove all hazardous materials from the house, including asbestos and lead-based paint.
  • Demolish the house using heavy machinery.
  • Remove debris from the site and dispose of it properly.
  • Prepare the site for new construction.

Next, you would put together a timeline for the demolition process. This is important to ensure that the project stays on schedule and that there are no surprises along the way. 

Your demolition contract might include this:

Timeline: The proposed timeline for the demolition of the Smith House is as follows:

  • Hazardous materials will be removed within two weeks.
  • The house will be demolished within two weeks.
  • All debris will be removed within three days.
  • The site will be ready for new construction within one week.

Finally, you would put together a cost estimate for the project and . This is usually done by calculating the cost of labor services, materials, and equipment rental.

Your demolition contract template might include the following terms:

Total project pricing: The estimated cost of the proposed work is $15,000 to be approved by the client prior to the completion date. The contractor will demolish the office building in its current standing for the pricing listed above, which includes the cost of:

  • removing all hazardous materials
  • demolishing the house
  • removing all debris
  • preparing the site for new construction

Once you have all of this information, you can put together a demolition proposal that outlines the entire project from start to finish, outlining the proposed work, timeline, and agreed amount.

Tips to consider when creating a demolition proposal

Putting together a demolition proposal can seem like a daunting task, but it doesn't have to be. Here are a few tips to help you get started:

Check state and local laws and regulations

Be sure to familiarize yourself with all state and local laws and regulations that might apply to your project. These laws and regulations can vary greatly from state to state, so you must do your homework before getting started.

Create a realistic timeline

More often than not, demolition projects run into delays. When putting together your timeline, be sure to factor in some additional time in case of unforeseen delays. This will help to ensure that your proposal is realistic and achievable.

Be concise and to the point

When writing a construction proposal, less is more. Be sure to get rid of any unnecessary fluff or filler in your proposal. Your client should be able to read your proposal and understand the scope of work without having to wade through a lot of unnecessary information.

Do your research

Make sure you understand the scope of the project and what is involved in the demolition process. This means familiarizing yourself with the property, the surrounding area, and the client's needs and expectations. And this can also mean knowing who the rightful and legal owner of the property address. The more information you have, the better equipped you'll be to put together a comprehensive proposal.
