Seminars, Workshops and Training

JCT 2016 and JCT 2024

We provide in-depth training on administering JCT contracts, including the Standard Building Contract, JCT Design and Build Contract, JCT Intermediate Building Contract and the Construction Management Trade Contract. This training provides in‑depth knowledge on compliance with the detailed provisions of the contract.

Just a quick note to thank you for the training you delivered yesterday.

It was the best construction law type training session I’ve been on, very relevant, well structured and importantly, well delivered.  I’ve spoken to a few of the other attendees, sentiment is similar.

My NEC awareness is certainly robustly refreshed.

NEC3 and NEC4

Detailed training is also provided for the NEC Engineering and Construction Contract (ECC), with focus on the relevant main option clause (A to F). This training provides in-depth knowledge on compliance with the NEC’s extensive provisions, helping to recognise contractual risks and opportunities, including in respect to the programme, compensation events and early warnings.

Thanks Eugene for an excellent presentation on the NEC contract to the Align HS2 joint venture team. It’s never easy pitching a subject and explaining with such clarity to such an international and diverse audience (some of whom have little/no knowledge of the NEC). Notwithstanding, the feedback from the day was outstanding! Everyone took something away from the session – even those who already “knew it all!

Commercial Awareness and Contract Administration

Commercial awareness is critical to effective project 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, risk management, battle of the forms, standard forms of contract, common contract amendments, letters of intent, design responsibility, payment (including ‘smash & grab’), change management, claims, extension of time and loss & expense procedures, delay analysis techniques and concurrency.

“Eugene delivered a seminar on the key differences between NEC3 & NEC4 in the spring of 2018. The group had a mix of experience in NEC contracts and Eugene’s delivery of the key topics was clear and easy to understand for all. His engaging manner meant everyone was welcomed to participate in the seminar and we all came out with a sense that we’d learnt something. I’d have no hesitation in calling on Eugene for our future training needs on the NEC contracts”.
