If they have a very good understanding of that, then at the project close out it really shouldn't be a problem, but most projects, there will be some element of confusion about whether the piece of equipment falls under the GC's jurisdiction, or whether that's something that the owner is really expected to bring by having some other contract, and some other person bringing it in, and sometimes the FF & E is handled by the GCs, one contract and they cover everything as sort of a turnkey process, so that's a very particular way of doing a development, where one person will take care of everything, and then the owner just has to move in, and you hand over the key, and that's done. But typically things like chairs and tables and things like that, that's not something that's gonna be part of the general contractor. So there's multiple contractors usually involved in a process, and when you get to this project close out time, there's sort of a transitioning of one contractor with another, so the general contractor is trying to finish up and trying to make sure that the punch list is all done while the other folks are bringing in all the furnishings, and making sure that the refrigerator is working, and getting the server to be correctly positioned, and not overheat, and do all that.
