Course Overview

You will need at least one of these contracts for your next building project – but how will you know how to use them?  This is the perfect course for you!

The course is structured as an interview between an architect and one of the heavy-weights of our industry – especially when it comes to the JBCC – Stan Segal.

Anyone can read through a contract, but then most have a couple of technical questions.  This course resolves that issue for you.  We discuss the things you didn’t know you should look out for – we help you to become well versed in the content, structure and intention of both the contracts. 

You will be able to confidently advise your clients on IF, WHEN and HOW the new JBCC Small and Simple Works Contract and the JBCC Direct Contractor’s Contract should be used. 

This course is on an intermediate to expert level – the participants must have worked with the JBCC before.

The course is structured as two sessions, each dealing with the respective contracts in detail.  The course is accompanied by a set of comprehensive notes that one can use in the future as easy-reference material.

Note: The JBCC contracts are not distributed as part of the course content – the JBCC contracts are copyright protected.  One does not have to read through the contracts to be able to fully understand the course, but attendees are encouraged to buy the contracts and have it in hand while attending the course.

You will have the confidence and insight to start using these two contracts, on an expert level, after watching this course.
