The JCT Design and Build Contract 2011 Edition is an agreement under which the Contractor prepares and completes the design and construction of the Works usually for a lump sum.
This is a Contract in which Design, design liability and managing design are at the forefront. Hence understanding how to draft such a Contract, operate under the Contract, administer the Contract and complete the Contract from Employer, Consultant and Contractor perspective is a must.
This is a Contract where:
Detailed contract provisions are necessary and the employer has prepared his requirements and issued these to the contractor; and
Where the contractor is not only to carry out and complete the works, but is also to complete the design; and
Where the Employer employs an agent (who may be an external consultant or employee) to administer the conditions.
By the end of this course you should be able to:
Describe the purpose of Design and Build contracts and how this contract is used in the Construction Industry
Understand the terminology of the JCT Design and Build 2011 contract.
Differentiate role responsibility and when that responsibility ceases
Understand the management of the Contract – managing variations, delay, payment, design, etc.
