The remaining 60% shall become due when the Work is completed to the reasonable satisfaction of the Client but subject to the terms of Clause 4.3 Approval of Work and Clause 4.4 Rejected Work hereof.

Once approved, or deemed approved, work cannot subsequently be rejected, and the contract will be deemed to have been completed and the 60% balancing payment under Clause 2.1 Fee Payable will become due. The Contract will remain in effect until all obligations have been completed in terms of this Clause.
