About this Publication:

Since 1991 the JBCC Principal Building Agreement has been used almost exclusively in the building industry for projects in the private sector. Recently the State took the policy decision that it too would use these agreements subject to appropriate modification, and these modifications were incorporated in the March 2005 edition of the JBCC Principal Building Agreement.

This edition of The Building Contract deals not only with the provisions of the Agreement as they are applied in State projects, but also how the Agreement, and its associated documents, is employed in conventional projects in the private sector. Innovations such as adjudication, the advance payment guarantee, and the Minor Works Agreement, are also discussed. The user is armed with knowledge of the nature of the contractual relationship and an understanding of the way in which the agreements are intended to regulate it.
