Contractual documents

To help develop this article, click 'Edit this article' above.

See also Contract documents for a list of the documents setting out the obligations and responsibilities of the parties to the contract on a traditionally-procured, fully-designed construction project,


This article lists the documents that are commonly required by or referred to in a construction contract. In some cases different contracts may use different names for the same document. Where this is the case, alternative names are shown.

NB A pre-contract meeting is likely to take place after the contractor has been appointed but before work commences on site. This is an opportunity to for the project team to meet (perhaps for the first time) and to plan the construction stage. The minutes of the pre-contract meeting may form part of contract documents (for all procurement routes) subject to the agreement of both parties. See pre-contract meeting for more information.
