293. Defects.

A defect commonly means that some of the work or materials does not conform with the requirements of the contract, and thus the contractor is in breach of contract in that respect. However, not every failure to execute the works in accordance with the contract prior to completion is a breach resulting in a breach of contract1. A contractor may also be under an obligation to warn the building owner or his professional agent of any defect or any deficiencies in the plans or specifications which might result in a defect during the works
