Example text

If the basic test of the section 104 parameters cannot be satisfied there is no need to examine section 105. In the broad sense a construction contract will include the traditional main contracts, sub-contracts and sub-sub-contract arrangements that the industry is familiar with. Many of the collateral warranties used in the construction industry also fall within the scope of section 104(1)( a). Section 104(1)(b) which uses the term `arranging for the carrying out of construction operations' places management contracts and other similar methods of procurement within the scope of the Act.

This matter was visited in Staveley12 which concerned works for the supply and installation of fittings into steel modules which were being constructed in England. The modules were intended for use as living quarters for operatives of an oil platform in the Gulf of Mexico. They were to be towed to location and welded onto platforms which were supported by legs founded in the bed of the sea. The court ruled `structures which were, or were to be, founded in the sea bed below low water mark were not structures forming, or to form, part of the land for the purposes of section 105(1) of the 1996 Act'.

The provisions of the Act would catch exactly the same installation if it were merely part of a larger development of which the primary purpose was not sewage treatment. It is only the work connected with the process that is exempt from the provisions of the Act. The buildings that enclose the process plant and equipment are within the Act. The exemption only applies to those industries listed in (c)(i) or those processes listed in (c)(ii). This is the type of work often covered by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers/ Institution of Electrical Engineers Model Forms (MF/1 and MF/2) and Institution of Chemical Engineers standard forms of contract (the Red, Green, Yellow, Brown, and Orange Books).
