Construction Contracts Training
We provide external training courses to the wider industry to facilitate the successful implementation and administration of construction contracts and to promote commercial awareness, enabling companies who may not have the resources to do so to support the development of their teams.
Standard Forms Training
We provide in-depth training on administering the JCT Standard Building Contract, JCT Design and Build Contract, and JCT Intermediate Building Contract. This training provides in‑depth knowledge on compliance with the detailed provisions of the contract to achieve project success. Focus is predominantly on obligations, payment, change management and notice provisions.
These courses are suitable for a wide range of construction professionals, including (but not limited to) architects, project managers, contract managers and quantity surveyors, and can be delivered to project teams to promote team working.
Detailed training is also provided for the NEC4 Engineering and Construction Contract (ECC) and NEC4 Professional Service Contract (PSC), with focus on the relevant main option clause specified by the attendees, this being options A to E for the ECC and options A, C or E for the PSC. This training provides in-depth knowledge on compliance with the NEC's extensive provisions with respect to the programme and compensation events and helps to engender the spirit of cooperation set out by the contract. We also provide shorter, more focused courses in relation to compensation events, the time and cost effects of change, and programming and planning.
These courses are suitable for project managers, contract managers, quantity surveyors, estimators and clients, as well as other professionals working on the contract.
Commercial awareness is fundamental to effective contract management. This training will increase confidence in dealing with commercial and contractual issues and highlight how to reduce risk and maximise opportunities. The training covers areas including procurement methods, common contract amendments, risk management, battle of the forms, letters of intent, change management, notice management, design responsibility, and loss and expense and extension of time procedures.
This course is suitable for estimators, project managers, quantity surveyors, supervisors and any other construction professionals with commercial impact.
We can provide bespoke training on how to comply and understand your rights with respect to the Construction Act 2009, focusing on payment, suspension, adjudication and subconsultants. This course is suitable for employers, contractors and subcontractors and helps to reduce the risk and / or benefit from ‘smash and grab’ type adjudications.
We provide training programmes to assist quantity surveyors in obtaining professional membership of the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS). This training is suitable for organisations that do not possess the in-house experience to provide the required standard of training set out by the RICS. We can provide contract and commercial awareness training to candidates, and our qualified APC assessors will review submission documentation and arrange mock interviews to prepare candidates for their final interview.
We have and continue to provide this training to a number of large contractors, which has resulted in their employees achieving RICS membership.
