I agree to have the construction plans prepared in compliance with all pertinent details of the ARB approved plans.  In the event of a conflict, the ARB approved Plans shall prevail over the construction plans.  I further acknowledge that failure to construct the project pursuant to the ARB approved plans is grounds for withholding final inspection and occupancy until such discrepancy(s) are resolved."
