Glovers offer a full range of seminars and briefings tailor made to suit your organisation’s needs. Courses can vary between one hour briefings on a topical issue to full day seminars on standard form contracts. Such seminars can be invaluable if your company is about to commence a project using a contract with which your staff are unfamiliar. Failure to administer contracts properly is a common source of disputes and can be extremely costly in the long run.

Seminar topics include:

  • Contract administration
  • How to operate standard forms e.g. JCT, DB, NEC3, IChemE
  • Risk management
  • How to succeed in adjudication
  • Selecting the correct form of ADR
  • Health and Safety
  • CDM

We can also prepare bespoke seminars on particular issues affecting your organisation.

We have delivered seminars on JCT and NEC3/Scape to NHS Trust Estates teams across the North West of England. Head of Capital Projects and Design for Pennine Care NHS Foundation Trust, Jon Campbell said:

“Glovers’ CPD seminar on minimising risk under JCT contracts provided a useful insight to my Estates Team as to how we could all contribute to delivering our capital projects on time and on budget whilst ensuring the end-user requirements were satisfied. It provided the commercial angle which can sometimes be overlooked in a public sector body and the input of AFL Architects into the seminar highlighted how we could improve our design process to get ‘more for less’. The seminar itself was highly interactive and sparked some interesting debate amongst the team.”

We have also carried out in house training on the JCT DB 2011 form of contract for an entire contractor organisation across three offices.

Most recently we provided a seminar on the new NEC4 suite of contracts in conjunction with Keating Chambers.
