Prior to the erection of the building the Company WILL NOT undertake any major groundwork, the removal of any existing building from the site or provide a concrete base and brick course for a garage or car port or if this is the preferred base of the customer.

  3. The company reserves the right to extend the completion date where it deems necessary and cannot guarantee a specific delivery time.
