“Introduction To Contractual Awareness and Using JCT Subcontracts” 

“Understand Your Contract to Minimise Risk and Maximise Profit”  

Our exclusively for Specialist Contractors training seminars are taking place in November. Here are the details;

WHEN/WHERE IS IT? The dates and venues are as follows; 

15 March – Oulton Hall - Leeds close to M1 and M62     

22 March - The Nottingham Belfry – Nottingham close to M1 J26      

29 March - The Village Hotel - Coventry close to M6 and M40   

WHAT DOES IT COVER? The course is presented in a straightforward down to earth easy to follow style using real life examples. It is designed to give a detailed grounding in the essential elements of subcontract law and procedures, with emphasis on the JCT subcontracts. The course covers practical aspects of how contracts are formed and how to understand and use the key provisions of the contract.

Full details are available on request, but here are the headlines; 

  • Session 1 - Contract Formation
  • Session 2 - Introduction to JCT Contracts and Construction Act
  • Session 3 - Time, Notices and Delay and Disruption
  • Session 4 - Instructions, Variations and Maximising Return
  • Session 5 - Getting Paid On Time and the Right Amount
  • Session 6 - Resolving Conflicts and Disputes
  • Session 7 - Putting It All Together 

WHO SHOULD ATTEND THE COURSE? The course is exclusively for Specialist Contractors and is designed specifically to provide a broad appeal for Specialist Contractors staff who work with contracts; which includes; Estimators, Contracts Managers; Project Managers; Commercial Managers, Quantity Surveyors, Credit Controllers and Directors. 

WHAT WILL WE GET OUT OF IT? Specialist Contractors often end up at the mercy of the Contractor simply because they don’t understand the contract or don’t apply it when they should. This course will enable you to understand the fundamentals of those subcontracts, and give you more confidence when dealing with contractual matters.

"If you can I strongly advise any Specialist Contractor to attend the above mentioned seminar, I attended the Leeds morning, 3-4 hours, picked up loads of useful tips, really made me think who we want to work with or for." 

Daniel Roche M.B.Roche & Sons Ltd Hull Seminar delegate 11 March 2014

The seminar is exclusively for Specialist Contractors like yourselves and it will arm you with the knowledge you need to give your business the best possible chance not only of survival, but of growth and success in any economy, no matter what the industry throws at you!

The 7 Key Secrets revealed on the day will be

1 Knowing who you are working for! Learn the dangers of dormant companies, companies of straw and companies registered in other jurisdictions. They are just some of the obstacles you might face when you try to get paid.

2 Understanding your obligations. Understanding the how, what, when, were and extent of your liability is crucial to ensure that it doesn't come back to bite you!

3 Not all contracts are the same! If you don't recognise the onerous terms of the contract you are highly likely to be one of the business failures of 2014!

4 Don't create your own problems! Make sure that you don't fall into the Contractor's trap of taking no action when problems occur. Or they will make their margin from you!

5 Price, profit and promotion. How to make sure you are one of the success stories of 2014.

6 How to get paid! The biggest single challenge facing your business in 2014 and how to make sure you get paid on time every time!.

There are dozens of reasons why you should attend, but the headlines about failed Specialist Contractors keep on coming and you don't want to be next ...

"Steelwork contractor DGT Structures goes down

Tue 25th February | 7:04 from Construction Enquirer

More than 100 jobs are at risk at a Norfolk steelwork contractor which has fallen into administration. 

Staff at DGT Structures fear mass redundancies after the firm was placed in the hands of administrator McTear Williams and Wood."

"West Sussex-based steelwork contractor Graham Wood Structural has collapsed."

13 February 2014  from Construction Enquirer

The firm... had run up losses in recent years, but managed to keep afloat with the help of parent company loans... but the current deal does not save Graham Wood Structural, which employed 25 management and office staff with around 50 operatives, according to the last accounts and owed £2.6m."

Don't let this be you!

There are significant steps that every Specialist Contractor can take to protect your business in 2014.
