Introduction to JCT Contracts – Seminar

Introduction to JCT Contracts – Seminar

The Joint Contracts Tribunal (JCT) publishes standard forms of building contract that are used for construction projects in England and Wales.

The first standard forms were developed over 200 years ago and we examine the reasons why they are so popular.

We look at who is on the Joint Contract Tribunal, when the standard forms were first published, and what they consist of.

The seminar will examine the construction process from design, contracting, build and final account.

It will look at the considerations that need to be taken account of when deciding what form of contract to use.

The seminar identifies the most commonly used building contracts published by the JCT and suggests when each may be used.

  • This seminar will deal with
    Traditional procurement, where the contractor does not carry out design
  • Design and build procurement, where a contractor both designs and builds a project
  • Management Contracting

Although in traditional procurement the contractor does not design the whole project, it is common for the contractor to design a part of a project.

  • Management
  • Contract Families

The seminar examines:

  • Building contracts designed for projects carried out by owners or occupiers of domestic properties
  • Building contracts for small-scale projects
  • Building contracts for mid-sized projects
  • Building contracts for many of the larger commercial projects, where an architect is responsible for design
  • A building contract for many of the larger commercial projects, where the contractor is responsible for overall design and construction
  • A building contract for the largest of commercial projects, where experienced parties want a contractor to design and build the whole project

Its focus is on the 2016 Editions and its distinctive features such as the Common Valuation Date.
