Guide to IFC 98 acts as a working aid to the operation and administration of the Intermediate Form of Building Contract 1998 (IFC98)It provides a straightforward explanation of the provisions of the contract and how they might work in practice, along with recent court cases and material in tabular or diagrammaitc form to enable quick and clear access to information.In addition to discussing where the form might appropriately be used, the Guide describes the other documents which may form part of the contract package.Readers are alerted, in particular, to the dangers of overlooking any relevant 'implied terms' which are not overtly stated in the Agreement.The Guide assumes only a general knowledge of JCT traditional forms of contract and can therefore be used as an introduction for the less experienced architect and Part 3 level student, as well as a 'desktop' reference manual for the busy contract administrator.
