Jct Pre-Construction Services Agreement (General Contractor) 2016

Current Edition: PCSA 2016 Previous edition: PCSA 2011 For the provision of pre-construction services by a selected contractor as part of a two-stage tendering process The agreement covers the tendering period for the submission of a second final tendering procedure and the opening of a main tender for the construction phase. The contractor`s participation in the pre-construction phase is valuable and often essential for the final project design process, as well as for the preparation of the construction phase, such as the program, cost plans, construction capacity and any specialized acquisition. Inevitably, there will be projects for which two-stage tendering will not be appropriate. While the guidelines state that it can be adapted to a project management structure, the need for a pre-construction phase could hinder the objective of this procurement strategy, namely the rapid start of work. Similarly, for projects where employers have a finalized project capable of identifying potential risk areas, employers can accurately predict the expected amount of the contract without having to spend time and expense on a two-step tender. For more information on pre-construction service contracts in the construction industry, please see the practical terms: pre-construction service contracts. The JCT contract is available in two variants for the provision of advances by a specialist to an employer or the actual or future principal contractor for essential and/or complex projects, before participating in a subcontracting for construction or installation work. The “General Contractor” form is intended for the requirement for a senior contractor to provide inputs. The “specialist” version is appropriate when an employer or contractor intends to hire a consultant or subcontractor. In a two-stage tender, the first phase is for the employer to select a preferred contractor by tender at an early stage of design development. Bidders submit a lump sum proposal for preliminary work, a program and method statement, but instead of being a flat price for the construction phase, this is an offer only for overhead, profits and preliminary work. After the selection, preferred employers and contractors work together, as it provides factory packages for fixed-price packages. If most parcels are validated, the contractor will submit its offer in the second phase and the employer will decide whether to accept it and enter into a lump sum contract for the entire plant.

One of the concerns of employers in the pre-construction period is the potential leverage of the preferred contractor to increase the amount of the contract or renegotiate the conditions of execution of the work. To deal with this problem, the parties agree, in the details of the PCSA, to the criteria on which the contractor must submit its second tender offer, including the form of the work contract (including possible modifications) that must be concluded. This is where a pre-construction contract is concluded. It determines the relationship between the employer and the preferred contractor for the pre-construction period, which begins with his appointment and ends with the signing of a construction contract. The contractor`s early involvement allows the contractor to contribute to construction and design and to submit value engineering proposals. Bidding for plant packages, often on an open-book basis, will help ensure cost safety and determine whether it is economically advantageous to continue development.
