JCT Design and Build Sub-Contract Agreement 2016 (DBSub/A) The Design and Build Sub-contract is designed to be used where the main contract is the Design and Build Contract.
It can be used where the sub-contracted works are fully designed, or if the sub-contractor is required to design all or a part of the works. The Design and Build Sub-Contract can be used: The Design and Build Sub-Contract is made up of two parts: the Sub-Contract Agreement (DBSub/A) which includes the Recitals, Articles and Sub-Contract Particulars, and the Sub-Contract Conditions (DBSub/C).
It can only be used when the main contract is the Design and Build Contract. It can be used where the sub-contracted works are fully designed, or if the sub-contractor is required to design all or a part of the works. It can be used when either the main contract works or the sub-contract works are to be carried out in sections. It can be used for sub-contract works that are to be carried out on the basis of an adjusted sub-contract sum (adjustment for variations etc.) or by complete remeasurement.
Provisions are included for collaborative working, sustainability and bonds (off-site materials and retention). With JCTs New Rules of Measurement Update, users can use NRM2 instead of SMM7 under this contract.
