Design and Build Contract for use in Scotland (Nov 2011)


  • Where detailed contract provisions are necessary and Employer’s Requirements have been prepared and provided to the Contractor;
  • Where the Contractor is not only to carry out and complete the works, but also to complete the design; and
  • Where the Employer employs an agent (who may be an external consultant or employee) to administer the conditions.

Can be used:

  • Where the works are to be carried out in sections;
  • By both private and local authority employers.

Where the Contractor is restricted to design small discrete parts of the works and not made responsible for completing the design for the whole works, consideration should be given to using one of the JCT contracts that provide for such limited design input by the Contractor and the employment of a Contract Administrator.
