The pre-construction services agreement allows the contractor to cooperate with the employer or its team of consultants to draw up detailed projects, develop the main works or draw up specific tender documents. `. Work performed prior to the main construction contract. Enabling Works are jobs specified by the employer and/or the project team, which are a mix of facilitating work and new work (preparatory work in the field, such as.B. major demolition work, removal of contaminated materials, measures to reduce reptiles and stabilize soils; with new sewers, new access roads, new drainages, new retaining walls and small construction works. What you may have never heard is a contract of competence. In many ways, it is similar to a construction contract, except that it applies to work that must be done on a construction site before it can be built. Since many sites are prepared for the desired buildings for construction, these documents are not always necessary for every project.

Nevertheless, long-term workers in the sector will likely end up dealing with a competency contract and it`s worth knowing exactly what to expect. Here are some elements that are usually covered in this type of agreement. The general JCT PCSA does not cover this possibility, but the JCT PCSA specialist is the vehicle for the developer to place orders and allows to transfer the benefit of the agreement to the selected main contractor. Note, however, that this is the transfer of the service and not the burden, i.e. the payment obligations would remain the responsibility of the promoter. To a large extent, an enabling agreement or enabling contract is similar to a handshake agreement, since the parties to the agreement agree on an exchange (e.g. B for the supply of goods or services for remuneration), which sets the very extensive conditions, but does not lay down detailed conditions. This contrasts with the facilitation of work defined by NRM1 as follows: in recent years, pre-construction service agreements („PCSAs“) have become commonplace in construction projects. Until recently, all of these agreements were tailor-made documents, but the YCW has now released two standard CSSPs. This article examines: the agreement covers the period from the submission of first phase tenders to the submission of a second stage final tender and the conclusion of a main contract for the construction phase. .
