The RIBA, 66 Portland Place
The appeal of JCT Minor Works contracts is that they are brief documents that look relatively straightforward. A person could be forgiven for concluding at first glance that they must be relatively simple to administer. Nothing could be further from the truth. They are significantly different in many ways from the other commonly used contracts published by the JCT (i.e. the IC and SBC) and
possibly more difficult to administer.
The JCT launched a revised version of the documents in September 2011 which, among other things, introduced significant changes to the payment regime so as to comply with the revisions to the Housing Grants Construction and Regeneration Act 1996.
This seminar will look at the key change to the payment provisions in the 2011 contracts and also some of the other provisions that make the contract administrator's role under the MW contracts that much more difficult. This seminar is suitable for architects and practitioners involved with the administration of the JCT building contracts.
Speaker: Michael Dunn, LLB LLM FRICS FCIArb is a Director, Rex Procter & Partners. He is a member of the Society of Construction law and the Adjudication Society.
