Note: Attendance Certificates are provided to delegates for each seminar attended.

Principal Building Agreement and Nominated / Selected Subcontract Agreement

This seminar is the essential introduction to the JBCC contract documentation. The Principal Building Agreement defines the primary contractual conditions applicable to the document suite. The presentation is cross referenced to the Nominated / Selected Subcontract Agreement to illustrate the working relationship between the contractor and specialist contractors. Developers, professionals, contractors, subcontractors and others related to the building industry will gain an understanding of the Agreement to enable them to competently administer a building contract. Delegates will receive a memory stick containing notes dealing with each clause in the three agreements, the appropriate completion of standard forms and a reference copy of the agreements and applicable contract data.

Corporate/ In-house seminars

JBCC® offers a limited number of corporate or in-house seminars each year and requires a minimum of 20 delegates at each presentation. These seminars are preferably aligned with visits to main centres. For further information please contact our office via email at info@jbcc.co.za
