This Practice Note explains who the Joint Contracts Tribunal JCT are and also provides an overview of the most commonly used contracts within the JCT suite in relation to traditional procurement, design and build procurement and management routes of procurement. The JCT publishes a suite of standard form building contracts and associated documents, including collateral warranties that are widely used for construction projects in the UK. This Practice Note considers which parties are responsible for design, the standard of care to be exercised, and other key provisions relating to design including how discrepancies are dealt with, the design submission procedure and copyright. It also contains drafting notes and links to other suggested clauses where the parties may wish to further amend the standard JCT provisions.
