The Joint Contracts Tribunal (JCT) is offering a prize of two tickets to the View from The Shard¹ for taking part in its Non-UK Markets Contract Survey.
The Shard, which was built on a JCT Standard Building Contract is the tallest building in Europe and offers an unprecedented view of the London skyline.
JCT is seeking informed views on the use of its standard form contracts on construction projects outside the UK. The survey is particularly relevant to those who currently use JCT contracts on projects overseas, or those who regularly procure work outside the UK and would like to use a JCT form.
JCT is aiming to use the findings from the survey to investigate how to make it easier for JCT contract users to adopt one of its contracts on a project in a non-UK market.
JCT Vice-Chair, John Riches, said:
“We know from a recent RICS survey² that 14% of their sample has used a JCT form of contract on an overseas project.
“JCT is keen to improve its understanding of where and how its contracts are being used outside of the UK, and look at ways we can assist contract users by investigating the availability of our contracts internationally or looking at provisions to make our forms more suitable when used in non-UK markets.”
The JCT Non-UK Markets Contract Survey closes on 30 September 2013. To take part in the survey, visit: www.jctltd.co.uk/non-uk-markets-survey.aspx
