Setting Out – by the contractor who remains responsible for correct setting out (notwithstanding checking by others except where incorrect information was provided) and for the protection of undocumented services, relics or other features that may be uncovered – in terms of information provided by the principal agent.

The principal agent may supplement a JBCC® Site Possession Certificate with a site plan and (dated) photographs of the site / boundaries / damaged items … to avoid possible claims from neighbours!

The contractor must immediately give notice to the principal agent on uncovering undocumented services, relics, historical artefacts and/or possibly human bones are found = this may be the basis of a claim for the revision of the date for practical completion and/or an adjustment of the contract value
