Contract insurance under JCT Management Building Contract 2011


21.1 The Management Building Contract is an unusual form of contract as the management contractor does not carry out any construction work, but manages the project for a fee, employing ‘works contractors’ to undertake the physical construction works. It is appropriate for large-scale projects where an early start is required on site, where the works are to be designed by the employer but where it is not possible to prepare full design information before the works commence or where much of the detail design is of a sophisticated or innovative nature requiring proprietary systems of specialist design. It should not be confused with construction management: the client appoints a team of consultants to prepare the design and a specialist construction manager, whose principal role is to manage the construction of the works by a team of specialist trade contractors. This form of contract is addressed in Chapter 22.
