This course examines in detail the JCT 2011 Standard Form of Building Contract & the administration of the two main forms of JCT 2011 Sub-Contract. It covers specific areas of the standard forms such as documents, notices, variations, damages and claims.

As you will appreciate the administration of the main provisions of JCT 2011 is somewhat different as it applies to subcontracts, for example the progress of the works, and the remedy for failure to complete the works within the specified period. The standard form of building contract is still the most popular, and most widely used, standard form of building contract in the UK (according to RICS contracts in use survey in 2007).

This course provides a useful insight into the structure of the contract and how to properly interpret the main clauses of the contract conditions. As this contract is well established there is much case law which assists the interpretation of many of the clauses, and such cases will be referred to by the course leader.
