Guide to JCT Design & Build Contract 2016 is a practical guide to the operation and administration of the JCT Design & Build Contract suite 2016.

All of the contract’s provisions, procedures and conditions are organised and explained by subject, clearly distinguishing the different obligations due to various parties and the contractual issues arising during the course of a job – all backed up by the latest legislation and case law.

Changes to this new edition include:

  • thorough explanation and analysis of the new JCT Design & Build Contract 2016
  • comprehensive update on legislative changes since 2011, such as the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 and CDM Regulations 2015
  • coverage of key case law developments, on issues such as the meaning residential occupier, choice of contract, access to site, concurrent delay, inspection, practical completion, certification, payment, termination and mediation
  • objective commentary and comparison with relevant features of the new RIBA Building Contracts
  • brand new content to improve coverage and overall value to the reader
  • fresh new design.

Not only is this an indispensable reference for the hard-pressed practitioner, but, assuming no prior knowledge of JCT contracts or the law, it is also ideal for architecture and other construction students on the threshold of undertaking their professional exams.
