Constructing Excellence contract
In March 2007, the Joint Contracts Tribunal (JCT) launched a Constructing Excellence contract, specifically tailored for use in partnering and where participants adopt collaborative and integrated working practices.
Constructing Excellence was one of a number of cross-industry bodies established to drive change in response to the Latham Report (Constructing the Team, 1994) and the Egan Report (Rethinking Construction, 1998).
JCT-CE can be used throughout the supply chain, for appointing main contractors, sub-contractors, consultants, and for procuring a range of construction services. It can be used on both private and public sector projects.
In terms of suppliers, the contract can be used regardless of whether or not the supplier is to supply the design or (if they are contractor or consultant), regardless of how much design input they have.
The idea behind the contract is that it encourages and underpins collaborative working and the formation of integrated teams. This provides for the use of a risk register, risk allocation schedules and key performance indicators (KPIs).
