Francis Ho, Head of Construction, Olswang
For short work contracts, there's a new sheriff in town called RIBA - plain talking, bold and ambitious.
The RIBA Concise Building Contract (CBC) starts strongly. A capacity to stipulate sectional completion, a programme, advanced and milestone payments, third party rights and collateral warranties are enterprising developments for small works agreement. Parties can even use a risk register.
The CBC tackles several of the Minor Works Building Contract's bugbears and does so, remarkably, all within 30 pages. The focus is on plain language. Intellectual Property is dealt with in 43 words, adjudication in 29.
The RIBA Contracts are user friendly and will appeal to those who regard construction contracts as inscrutable.
