JOINT BUILDING CONTRACTS COMMITTEE

CONTRACTS ON DEMAND

Welcome to the Professional Client / Consultant Services Agreements Committee (PROCSA®) Website

Our Client/Consultant Professional Services Agreements comprise a suite of documents prepared to regulate the terms of engagement between the client and the consultants. It was compiled in the interests of standardisation and good practice in the construction industry on a mandate from the constituent members.

The Client / Consultant Professional Services Agreements comprise of the following:

  • Agreement: Terms and Conditions
  • Annexure A: Schedule (schedule of variables, amendments and or special conditions)
  • Annexure B: Services (scope of services specific to each discipline)
  • Further Annexures: As required and identified in the schedule which may, inter alia, include the relevant tariff of professional fees and schedule of disbursement rates etc.

The following Suite of Agreements are currently available:

• Architect • Structural Engineer • Electrical Engineer • Fire Consultant
• Landscape Architect • Civil Engineer • Quantity Surveyor • Project Manager
• Mechanical Engineer • Wet Services Engineer • Construction Health & Safety • Development Manager • Principal Agent (only) • Interior Architect • Blank

The Architect Agreement includes both Principal Consultant and Principal Agent as separate individual services and deliverables that can be selected by dropdown menus. There is therefore no need to sign a separate Principal Agent Agreement for this service.

The Agreements for Electrical, Mechanical, Structural & Civil Engineers, Landscape & Interior Architects include both Principal Consultant and Principal Agent services as combined services and deliverables that can be selected by a dropdown menu. There is therefore no need to sign separate Principal Agency Agreements for these services.

Should the Quantity Surveyor wish to provide Principal Agency services, then a separate Principal Agency Agreement for this service will be required.

The Agreements for Civil, Electrical, Mechanical, Wet Services Engineers, Landscape & Interior Architects include separate Quantity Surveying services and deliverables that can be selected by a dropdown menu.

Generally, it is to be understood that all the services included in Annexure B are generic and can be changed and/or omitted to suit specific projects and circumstances. Provision is also made to include additional services and/or deliverables in each stage if required.

The ’Blank’ Agreement is available for those disciplines not published.

Current and historic editions of the documents at reduced cost for ‘Reference only Purposes’ are also available. A Matrix of services and deliverables by discipline and by stage is also available, together with Suites of all the reference documents.
