Preconstruction phase timetable

Using Two Stage Open Book and Supply Chain Collaboration, published by HMSO in 2014, defines a preconstruction phase timetable as: ‘…a contractually binding timetable governing deadlines and interfaces for Preconstruction Phase activities by Integrated Team members under a Conditional Contract.’

Where the preconstruction phase is: ‘…the phase of a project or programme of work before the Client authorises commencement of all works and related activities on and off site.’

An integrated team is: ‘…the Client(s), Consultants, Tier 1 Contractor(s) and Tier 2/3 Subcontractors and Suppliers undertaking a project or programme of work.’

And a conditional contract is ‘…a project contract awarded to Integrated Team members describing Two Stage Open Book and/or Supply Chain Collaboration activities and the conditions to be met before the Integrated Team are entitled to undertake the Construction Phase of a project.’
