The course will be an introduction to the JCT suite of contracts and it will enable attendees to understand the particular methods of JCT contractual procurement, and the key elements of extensions of time, contractual notices, loss and expense, payment provisions, dispute resolution, suspension and termination and the importance of keeping records.


There is a large selection of contracts available to construction businesses, including the many JCT forms; choosing the most appropriate to the size and characteristics of your project and managing it effectively is key to the success of the project. To do this, you need to be sure on how the scope, roles, owners, timelines, costs, payments and risks are assigned.

This 1-day online course will outline the roles and responsibilities of all parties connected with the construction process and will inform participants on the requirement and importance of administration and record keeping.

In summary, delegates will walk away with a greater knowledge of where their risks like with the JCT suite of contracts together with an understanding of what a business is committing to when it enters into a JCT construction contract. It will also enable delegates to understand and manage their commercial expectations and enter into agreements that lead to a successful project completion.
