What’s new in the JCT’16 edition?

Briefly, the key changes include:-

Amended payment provisions; with Interim Valuation dates [IVD] and to facilitate payment to all tiers of the contractor/sub-contractor chain within 31 days of IVD.

Amended loss and expense provisions: new procedure for assessing loss & expense claims, which are intended to improve communication between the parties and create a timeframe for information to be provided and assessed.

Amended Insurance Option C, to allow more flexibility and allowing for alternative arrangements to suit the particular needs of the parties.
