The Intermediate Named Sub-Contract is designed for use when the main contract is either the Intermediate Building Contract, or the Intermediate Building Contract with contractor’s design, and the sub-contractor is ‘named’ in the main contract whether or not the sub-contract works include design.
The Intermediate Named Sub-Contract Conditions should be used in conjunction with the Intermediate Named Sub-Contract Tender and Agreement (ICsub/NAM), which includes the Invitation to Tender (ICSub/NAM/IT), the Tender (ICSub/NAM/T) and the Agreement (ICSub/NAM/A).
It can be used when either the main contract works or the sub-contract works are to be carried out in sections.
It can be be used for sub-contract works that are to be carried out on the basis of an adjusted sub-contract sum (adjustment for variations etc.) or by complete remeasurement.
Provisions are included for collaborative working, sustainability and off-site materials bond.
The Intermediate Named Sub-Contract is not suitable for any sub-contract work that forms a part of the contractor's designed portion.
Often an Intermediate Named Sub-Contract/Employer Agreement (ICSub/NAM/E) is used in conjunction with the sub-contract when the employer needs to have a direct relationship with the sub-contractor. This is particularly relevant in terms of the design responsibility of the sub-contractor, and if they are required to provide any collateral warranties to any purchasers/tenants or funder of the main contract works.
