Flexible options to buy and work with your JCT contracts online, plus an important notice about our JCT Contracts Digital (CD) Service
JCT is committed not only to best practice in creating its suite of contracts but also in their delivery, including embracing the latest digital technologies to support the drafting process and make accessing JCT contracts easier.
Two years ago, we launched our current digital services, JCT On Demand and JCT Construct, not knowing the unprecedented set of challenges the construction industry was about to face as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. However, JCT Digital revolutionised the online contract drafting process, which enabled many professionals to continue to be able to access the contracts they needed and support flexible working.
JCT On Demand is the quick and easy option for those who want to get their contract straight away in a digital format, be guided through filling it in, and output a clean printed copy for signing. The full range of JCT 2016 contracts is available from the JCT online store.
JCT Construct is a subscription service providing a range of sophisticated yet easy to use editing features, enabling the addition of bespoke clauses, amendments or any other customised text. Boilerplates can be created to easily replicate a bespoke set of amendments across different contracts and projects. Collaborative working is supported with guest-sharing, to enable all parties to the contract to share drafts, edit, and view changes.
Both services optimise best practice and transparency, by outputting comparison documents highlighting the full set of any edits and changes against the standard JCT text.
Through our digital-first approach, and as we continue to adapt and refine our services, JCT will be playing its role in supporting the industry’s drive to modernise, be agile, flexible and embrace cutting-edge technologies.

Announcement on the JCT Contracts Digital (CD) Service
As JCT continues to develop its online services, in cooperation with our technology partners, Thomson Reuters, the existing JCT Contracts Digital (CD) service will be phased out and replaced by JCT Construct.
From 1 October 2022, the current CD service will be withdrawn from sale.
Options for existing CD customers
You can choose to renew your current CD subscription for another 12 months if you have contracts in progress. You will have 12 months to complete your contracts and at the end of this period print credits will no longer be available to buy. New contracts and documents will not be made available on the CD and technical support for the CD service will end on 31 December 2023.
You can choose to migrate to JCT Construct now, ahead of the closure of the CD. JCT Construct is an online, subscription-based service which maintains the JCT contract structure you are already familiar with. The improved editing functionality means you can add your own amendments, clauses, or other customised text, as well as create boilerplates. The service brings JCT Digital up to date with functional and technical advances. It ensures that the wide variety of JCT contracts can be accessed easily and securely online and best serve your drafting needs.
