JCT Management Building Contract
The management contractor is generally appointed by the employer early in the design process so that their experience can be used to improve the cost and buildability of proposals as they develop, as well as to advise on packaging the works.
As the design is often carried out and completed alongside site activity, this can allow for greater flexibility and more control over design on the part of the employer. However, there is clearly more risk involved, as works begin before the nature of the completed building is known.
