issued by KLRCA
KLRCA’s Standard Form of Contracts (SFC) is a suite of standard form contracts that are customizable and freely available for print and download. KLRCA’s SFC was inspired by the prevalent issues plaguing the Malaysian construction industry, aimed at filling the gaps of existing standard form building contracts in governing relationships, rights and duties of parties to a building construction project. It is user-friendly, incorporates Plain English Drafting, and includes clearer provisions to guide users in interpreting the contract. KLRCA’s SFC is Malaysia’s first ever CIPAA-compliant suite of building contracts and contains more mechanisms for parties to resolve disputes and deadlocks including mediation, encouraging parties to continue work despite disputes, while preserving parties’ rights till completion. The hallmark of KLRCA’s SFC is continuity of works and working relationships.
Datuk Professor Sundra Rajoo spoke on the Standard Form of Building Contracts by KLRCA on BFM Radio Station on 28th July 2017. In case you have missed it, click play for the podcast.
KLRCA introduces the main contract, both ‘with quantities’ and ‘without quantities’ main contracts. These would be entered into between the owner or employer and the builder.
The KLRCA also introduces its Nominated Sub-Contract under the KLRCA’s suite of building SFCs, that is tailored to bring consistency between the main contract and the nominated sub-contract, so as to ensure smooth implementation of the construction works involving the whole construction chain of contracting parties.
