This course follows on from Understanding the Development Process, and looks in more detail at types of building contracts, the JCT D&B 2016 form, an overview of the stages in construction, how to be the active client during the on-site period, managing handover and defects.
This course is suitable for Development and Regeneration staff who are new to the discipline, and staff from other teams within Registered Providers who are drafted into Development project teams.
Entry or Pre-course Requirements
This course is designed to follow on from Understanding the Development Process. It is preferable, although not essential, that delegates should either have attended that course or have an equivalent level of knowledge.
Recommended Pre-course Reading
You will find it helpful to look over the relevant Topics in Developing Affordable Housing 2017, available here from the National Housing Federation,
Delegates are asked to review the following documents, and bring a copy to the course:
- A copy of a signed building contract for a scheme currently on-site or recently completed. This should be the full Form of Contract, not just the Contract Particulars pages. Please don’t bring all the associated contract documents – the ERs, Contractor’s proposals etc – that’d be too bulky to carry!
- A copy of a contractor’s programme for a scheme (could be the same scheme as the one above, or a different one);
- A copy of a Contractor’s application for payment and the EA’s Interim Certificate for the same month;
- A copy of a contractor’s Monthly Site Meeting Report (assuming you get them).
If you are unsure what documents in your files will give you this information, ask your manager who should be able to help.
