Congratulations – you’ve just been awarded your next contract.

So, you’ve worked hard putting together your tender submission, been negotiated down on price, had all of your tender qualifications either redacted or completely removed, attended the pre-let interview, been persuaded to provide attendances that your price never allowed for (and given a further 2.5% preferential payment discount) and now you have finally been awarded your next contract.

Then the Contract documents arrive for your signature and execution. 


Half a trees’ worth of paper written in an alien language containing Main Contract amendments, Clients amendments, Contractors’ own amendments,  z clauses and a whole host of information that you have never previously seen, barely resembling the Standard Form of Contract that you were expecting.

Do you sign and return the contract, hoping all runs smoothly on site? 

Wishful thinking!  Experience tells you that every past project that you have worked on has had its own issues, and you would wish to safeguard against these happening and protect your exposure.

Do you not sign and simply carry out the work?

Not advisable.  By doing this you are automatically accepting the Contract Terms and Conditions by specific performance, and have not considered your exposure.

Do you review yourself and hopefully pick up on the pertinent points to negotiate and challenge?

Great if you are experienced enough to do this, but with an ever changing climate are you up to date on current requirements?  Will you overlook key points leaving you over exposed? Do you fully understand the implications of every clause, sub-clause and amendment and are able to confidently negotiate these with your client?
