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.

What Is Demolition?

Demolition - commonly referred to as wrecking and razing - is a deconstruction process that deals with taking down artificial structures and buildings. It requires careful planning so that the process is as safe as possible. This is why a scope of work for demolition is a must.

Why Do I Need a Demolition Scope of Work Template?

Time is often money, which is why you cannot spend it endlessly writing your demolition scope of work. Platforms such as the Bonsai Freelancer tool suite can offer you the template that you need for your demolition site, and all you need to do is add the necessary information.

Demolition scope of work templates enable you to keep a clear schedule of your work, as they record every stage of the demolition. The materials needed, the debris that will require removal - every detail will appear in the scope of work.

What to Include in Demolition Scope of Work?

There are certain aspects that the demolition team has to address in the demolition scope of work. When using platforms such as Bonsai, you should add the following information:


By deliverables, we understand the expected outcome from demolishing the structures. Creating a report of the demolition is essential, and you also need to provide supporting documentation in your scope of work.


As the name suggests, the timeline will express exactly when the project starts and when it is expected to end. You may also want to include a complete schedule in the scope of work and maintain a realistic timeline.

Duties and Responsibilities

In the demolition scope of work, you also have to add all of your duties and responsibilities so that your client knows exactly what's necessary for you to complete your work. This can include anything from debris, signs, and pole removal to the actual demolition of the building.

Materials Used in the Demolition Process

You also need to add the materials used in the demolition process in your scope of work template. For instance, if the workers use tools, vehicles, and protective equipment, the client needs to know what they are paying for.


Last but probably the most important part of a demolition scope of work is the payment. Add your service fees, as well as the methods of payments accepted. Bonsai Cash, for example, helps you make the calculations while accepting multiple payment methods.

Commonly Used Demolition Methods

When it comes to the demolition scope of work, there are several methods commonly used. These include:

Crane and Wrecking Ball Demolition

While less common nowadays in a demolition scope of work, this is one of the earliest methods of demolition. As the name suggests, a crane and wrecking ball is used to tear the building down.

Interior Demolition

Interior demolition implies taking down certain parts of the interior of a structure while preserving the exterior.

To give some examples, exterior demolition is used when the owner wants to remove a wall, a ceiling, or other similar structures. The structures removed need to be added to the demolition scope of work.


In a demolition scope of work, implosion describes the process of using explosives to take down structures. The structural support is undermined through implosion, and the building will collapse within its footprint on a planned path.

Since only 1% of the demolition scope of work projects use implosion, it is not that common.

Selective Demolition

If you add selective demolition to the demolition scope of work, it means that you plan on demolishing a certain part of the structure while preserving the remaining sections.

For instance, you may have to demolish a few top floors of a building or a room of a home to be turned into a terrace.

Mechanical Demolition

Mechanical demolition, as the name implies, will use specialized tools and equipment to take down the structures.

This can include anything from hydraulic excavators that can break through concrete or demolition robots and skid steers. All of these are to be added to the scope of work template.


Unlike regular demolition which completely crushes the materials used in the structure, dismantling aims to preserve everything. This way, the components may be recycled, reused, or refurbished.

Deconstruction is often more labor intensive, which is why it will take more from the demolition scope of work. That being said, the project is often much safer and less prone to hazards.

Total Demolition

This method is quite self-explanatory. If you write down total demolition on the demolition scope of work, it means that you are planning to take down the entire structure from the location.

This method is often used when the owners of the plot want to create a new structure in that exact location.


Do I Need Qualifications to Work in Demolition?

Yes, you need to be qualified to work in demolition. You need to know what personal protective equipment to use, as well as how to complete a demolition project and efficiently fill out a scope of work.

How Long Does Demolition Usually Take?

Demolition may take around 2-5 days, depending on the size of the structure. Factors such as the weather conditions and the surroundings may also dictate how much the project will take to complete. A timeline will often be added to the scope of work.

How Much Does Demolition Work Cost?

Demolition costs will depend on the scope of the project, which costs around $2-$17 per square meter. Demolition scope templates such as Bonsai will take in the scope of work required and help calculate the final price.

The Bottom Line

Every demolition project needs a scope of work to keep you on track. By recording all the details, you can safely go through the process without putting anyone in danger. Also, it allows you to use your time efficiently.

Scope of work templates will usually turn out very useful, and you will no longer have to waste time writing them yourself. Whether you use Bonsai or other platforms, these templates will save a lot of time and money.
