The Minor Works Building Contract is by far the most widely used standard form of building contract and plays a vitally important part in the procurement of small-scale building projects.

The Guide assumes no prior knowledge of the form. After a general introduction setting out key provisions and changes, it explains some basic legal concepts and key legislation relevant to smaller projects. As the form is short, it is particularly important to understand the legal framework within which it is set, as this will help to ensure it is used appropriately.

For example, MW16 complies with the Housing Grants, Construction and Regeneration Act 1996, as amended by the Local Democracy, Economic Development and Construction Act 2009. The provisions introduced by this legislation, which ensure the form can be used on commercial projects, are identified and discussed in the Guide. However, these provisions are not essential for contracts not covered by this Act, such as those with a residential occupier. Therefore,where the form is being considered for use in this situation the complex provisions and their implications should be explained carefully to the client in advance of its selection.

The Guide examines the key issues that would be relevant to the contract administrator and the parties to the contract: the programming and timing issues, quality and control of the works, payment, insurance, termination and dispute resolution. It contains many tables that might act as useful checklists for the practitioner and diagrams to clarify the procedural sequences.

This Guide is intended as a clear and straightforward point of reference for those using and studying the form, including those encountering the contract for the first time and those needing regular reminders when actively engaged in administering a project.
