Master Builders KwaZulu-Natal was informed that the new principal building agreement is in print and will be released to all contracting parties during August 2018.
This agreement supersedes JBCC PBA 6.1 and on review appears to be a far more workable document. We urge our members to obtain this new agreement from our Print Studio once it is available. I will inform our members via the e bulletin once stocks of the new agreement have arrived. In addition, a new Minor Works Agreement and MBSA Domestic Subcontractor Agreement will be released in due course.
At the MBSA Congress which will be held in Port Elizabeth next month the Contractual & Legal Workshop will be dealing with the changes and comparison between the PBA 6.1 and 6.2. For our members not attending Congress this year I will provide detail of these changes as reported in the Workshop in an article later this year.
Should you require any further information on the above, please contact me.
