Landscape Works Contract 2017 (JCLI LWC 2017)
A Standard Form of Agreement and Conditions of Contract for Landscape Works, predominantly for use as a ‘commercial’ contract, which replaces all previous editions and revisions of the JCLI Landscape Works Contract.
The Contract has been updated to take account of many of the amendments in the JCT Minor Works Building Contract 2016. The payment provisions in the 2017 edition are essentially the same as in the 2012 edition, and guidance on the changes is provided in the JCLI Practice Note No 8 Revision 2 (April 2017) and the Model Certificates and Other Forms document for the contract (April 2017) which are free downloads below.
