Edwin H W CHAN, HKIA nominated representative to the Standard Form of Building Contracts Joint Contract Working Committee (SFBC JCWC), says that the 4th book in the series: contract form for main building works (without quantities) has been published on 29 July 2006. This will actually complete the series of publications that the JCWC has been entrusted to publish by the stakeholders including the Hong Kong Institute of Architects, the Hong Kong Institute of Construction Managers and the Hong Kong Institute of Surveyors.
The first three books were launched on 11 April 2005 after nearly a decade’s hard work by prominent figures in the industry, in particular Denis Levett, Lam Wo Hei, Peter Berry and William Wang.
With the Standard Form of Building Contracts now fully unveiled, said Edwin Chan, all practitioners of the local construction industry are now able to utilize this new set of contract forms which fully reflects the specific needs of the industry.
The Agreement & Schedule of Conditions of BUILDING CONTRACT for use in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (Standard Form of Building Contract Private Edition – Without Quantities 2006 Edition) is now available for sale at HK$120 per copy plus HK$18 for local postage.
