the Project Schedule; provided, that Owner timely provides Contractor with the information reasonably requested in respect of activities of Owner and its Separate Contractors, and that Owner gives Contractor timely and reasonable notice of activities that would require such coordination. For the avoidance of doubt, Contractor shall have final authority over the coordination of activities on the Project Site; provided, however, if Contractors exercise of such authority delays Owner in performing its obligation such that Owner cannot reasonably perform an obligation hereunder in accordance with the Project Schedule, Contractor will not be entitled to a Change Order on account thereof nor relief from its performance obligations hereunder.

Contractor is not entitled to rely on security provided by Owner prior to the Substantial Completion Date. Contractor shall erect, maintain or undertake, as required by existing conditions and the performance of this Agreement, all reasonable safeguards for safety and protection, including banners, lighting, CCTV monitoring, security patrols, controlled access, posting danger signs and other warnings against hazards, promulgating safety regulations, and notifying Owner and users of nearby sites and utilities.
