Prime Cost Building Contract

The JCT Prime Cost Building Contract is designed for projects that require an early start on site, often for alterations or urgent repair work (such as fire damage). The exact nature and extent of the work is not known until the project is underway, so full design documents are not completed until work has commenced. Prime Cost Building Contract is suitable for projects procured via the traditional or conventional method, using a cost reimbursement or cost plus payment structure. For features, please click here.
