Reminds me of the time I worked for a Department of Energy facility.

A large, old building was getting a new roof installed by a contractor. While the roof was being installed, someone in the DoE decided the building would be torn down. The DoE told the contractor to stop work on the new roof. The contractor refused because it was afraid it would not get paid for the price that was agreed upon in the contract. So the DoE had to wait for the roof to be completed and pass a full quality inspection before the building could be torn down.
